If you love to sing, love Rock and Roll, and want to have a great time with like-minded singers, you'll love the new Encore ROCKS Annapolis, a Rock n Roll Chorus! The fall selections will include music you loved growing up - and maybe a few things your kids loved, too! ENCORE ROCKS Annapolis rehearses Tuesdays at 10:30am at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis MD.
The fee is $175 and will include 15 90-minute rehearsals, expert instruction under the direction of Encore's Associate Artistic Director Jeffrey Dokken, sheet music, a rehearsal CD in your voice part, and concert performance for friends, family and the community at the end of the 15 week session. You may pay online with a credit card, mail in your check, or pay at the first rehearsal with a check.
All music will be three and four part harmony, challenging and educating singers of all abilities and skill levels. There are no auditions, singers may be seated for rehearsals and performances if they wish, and you do not need to be able to read music to participate.
Plan to join us in September 2017 when we begin our next semester. The first rehearsal is Tuesday, September 7, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. - noon.
