We have heard from some of you about the issue of the Les Miserable track on the rehearsal CD. Because of the number of musical pieces we are performing this semester and the space limit of the CD, decisions were made about what to include on the rehearsal CD and what to omit to make sure that all the most important tracks fit onto one CD. Jeanne made sure that the “Dominate Voice” track for Les Mis was included and the “balanced voice” soundtrack was not included intentionally. The decision was made to give the singers what they most needed to be prepared. Below are links to the “balanced voice” track for anyone who needs it but Jeanne feels sure that the dominate voice track is really all the singer needs.

Encore is dedicated to providing an excellent and accessible artistic environment for older adults, 55 and over, regardless of experience or ability, who seek arts education and performance opportunities under a professional artist. Encore is an IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax exempt organization.

All Encore programs are conducted by professional artists who will know how to get the most from their members. So come join the excitement, either as a beginner or at an advanced level. This is an excellent way to learn how to develop or improve your musical abilities, meet new friends, and look forward to an exciting performance schedule.

You’re never too old to try something new—and have the time of your life!

"It is possible at any age to discover a lifelong desire you never knew you had." ~Robert Brault

As of September 2016, Encore has fifteen Chorale locations in the DC/VA/MD area, as well as five new Encore ROCKS locations. Additionally, Encore continues to expand across the nation, with Affiliate Chorales at Laurel Lake Retirement Community in Hudson, OH; Reading, PA; Northeast Iowa School of Music, Dubuque, IA; Littleton and Highlands Ranch, CO; Santa Clarita, CA; and six in the Chicago area. With over 1,200 singers, we believe we are the largest choral organization in the U.S.!

If you have sung sometime in your life, want to return to singing, or have never sung outside the shower, join our other music enthusiasts for weekly instructional class/rehearsals with our seasoned and professional conductors.

The Chorale classes, designed for adults 55 years and above, are educational as well as enjoyable. Participants learn proper breathing techniques and how to improve their voice through correct tone production as their conductor guides them through weekly rehearsals in three- and four-part singing. The season concludes with combined performances with other Chorales as well as local concerts at most Chorale locations.

Be a part of a true harmonic convergence-if you can talk, you can sing!
