The concept of Encore ROCKS is simple: the best rock-n-roll music of all time performed in a choral setting.  Over the past 2 years, Encore ROCKS has grown exponentially, and is now delighting audiences and singers across the region.  Each session we learn incredibly exciting rock music in 3 and 4 part harmonies, and perform large combined concerts complete with a rock band accompanying us live onstage.  It is truly a musical experience like no other.  Under the guidance of our professional conductors, experienced and inexperienced singers alike will be challenged, entertained, and educated and will absolutely love rocking' out together!
