Here We Go Again! It's Holiday Concert Time!
I simply cannot believe it is December 2! Where did fall go? It seems like yesterday that we handed out the holiday music to all 1000 singers. And tricky music it is!! And I am so excited about beginning our Encore Holiday Concerts tomorrow, Dec. 3! The singers are ready. They are confident, courageous and eager to present these fabulous and free concerts within our communities across Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC. Nineteen concerts in all! Encore keeps growing in numbers, strength and talent.
And talk about excitement! In January we start our Tenth Anniversary Celebration. I remember sitting at our dining room table ten years ago, writing the mission statement. We have stayed true to that mission statement and our success has been extraordinary. Encore is a great legacy. Larry and I could not be happier.
The Encore office is all decorated for holidays! We have a lovely tree – fake - but lovely! But we do have a fresh pine wreath, some poinsettia plants and lots of holiday spirit. And soon we will have over 9,000 pieces of music in our office, ready to be made in to 1,000 packets for our singers for the spring semester. We just might have to move the Christmas out!
The Encore Chorale singers and the ENCORE ROCKS singers all make Encore strong. Encore would not exist without you. Happy Holidays to you all and I wish you fabulous concerts and many great memories. See you at the concerts!!
