Time to Get Caught Up
Wow! My last blog post post was December 16! Time flies! And how Encore has grown. One thousand singers keeps us hopping big time. This organization is packed with vibrant, inquisitive, and very talented singers and they deserve the best.
Most of the Chorales and ROCKS choruses are in Week Eight. The half-way point! The music is, if I may say so, fabulous!!! Not one complaint. That is unbelievable. And the singers are sounding so great. The excitement about DAR is building and it will be an incredible day. I can’t wait!
75 Encore singers traveled to The Homestead Feb. 24 – 26 and had a blast. We rehearsed, we laughed, we ate way too much, we partied, we stood in the hot springs, we did a flash mob of “You Make Me Feel So Young” at High Tea and we sang a great concert in the Commonwealth Room (photo on left). It was a grand three days. We are already making plans to return in late October, 2017. More on that as I know it.
I am humbled and honored to see the tremendous support for the Jeanne Kelly Fund. The most important thing to me is to keep Encore going forever. This is a great beginning!
Planning for the summer Encore Choral Institutes at Washington College and Chautauqua is well underway. These “sleep away camps” are always so much fun. It is a perfect vacation………..learning and performing challenging music, spending time in a beautiful location, meeting new friends and cherishing existing friends and feeding our soul with beautiful music. It is pure joy!
Larry and I are off on a much needed vacation. We will be cruising from Cologne to Basel. Only a week but a week that I don’t have to think too much!
