Encore is excited to announce our new Canadian Concert Tour offered in partnership with Classical Movements, a very well-regarded company who plans choral and orchestra tours for major organizations including National Symphony, major university choral programs and auditioned choirs. In short,  Classical Movements loves what we are all about and they have put together a splendid Eastern Canadian trip for May 2018. Encore Chorale and Encore ROCKS will be performing 3 large concerts on our concert tour!! The tour is scheduled to depart on May 29, 2018 and runs through June 4, 2018.




The trip begins with a flight to Montreal, where we will enjoy a tour of the area and perform a concert in a high-profile venue, perhaps Norte-Dame Basilica of Montreal. Stunning! We will also include the picturesque town of Laval, known for its thriving arts scene, museums, art galleries, and intricate architecture. We will perform a concert in Laval. Then off by bus or train along the St. Lawrence River to Quebec!  We will enjoy a city tour. This day also includes a sound check for our third big concert. The sixth day we tour around the Quebec area including Montmorency Falls. Day 7 we will have free time to wonder around Quebec.

Encore Our Story WEB









As of March 2018, Encore has fifteen Chorale locations in the DC/VA/MD area, as well as six Encore ROCKS locations. Additionally, Encore continues to expand across the nation, with Affiliate Chorales at Laurel Lake Retirement Community in Hudson, OH; Reading, PA;  Littleton and Highlands Ranch, CO; Santa Clarita, CA; and seven Encore Chorales and two Encore ROCKS in the Chicago area. New York City has become part of the Encore Experience with a new Chorale and ROCKS Chorus opening in Manhattan in mid-March, With nearly 2,000 singers participating in our programs, 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!
