Encore Creativity for Older Adults and St. Mary’s College of Maryland are pleased to present the Third Annual Summer Choral Camp for singers 55 years of age and older, June 15 to 19, 2010. With over 450 participants, Encore Chorale is the nation’s largest choral program for adults, 55+.
Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to work with dynamic conductor Jeanne Kelly, founder and director of Encore Creativity for Older Adults. The camp will offer fun and challenging music, including classical repertoire, spirituals, and exciting Broadway music.

Each day will begin with movement/dance class taught by Washington, DC dance instructor Tiffany Haughn. Then singers will join for a full choral rehearsal. After lunch, there will be free time to enjoy recreational opportunities at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Or singers can take a voice class or participate in a sectional rehearsal, followed by another full rehearsal. Evenings, Encore will present professional recitals open to the public.
Appearing this year will be Alan Yellowitz of The Beat Goes On presenting a dynamic drumming circle, engaging audience members. Also returning is the excellent West Shore Piano Trio.
