Challenge-Match

 

The opportunity to sing on the stage of DAR Constitution Hall is really something special. While we are offering this DAR concert experience at no cost to our singers and their family and friends, the concert does have some significant costs including the hall rental, Union worker's salaries required for stage crew and ushers, professional videographers, special concert programs, and more. But, we have exciting news! One very special donor has stepped up to offer $5,000 to help cover some of the costs of our 10th Anniversary Celebrations. WOW! There is only one catch...Encore receives the gift when we raise another $5,000 from other donors. When you make a gift to support Encore’s 10th Anniversary events, the value of your gift will be doubled! Every dollar counts! To help us meet the challenge, please click the button below to make a donation.

Encore is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All contributions to Encore are tax-deductible.

About Encore

2014-12-23-Kennedy Center-031-1

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!

"The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age." Lucille Ball (1911 - 1989)

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!
