Attention all Baltimore area Rock n Roll fans! Join Encore ROCKS Towson, Encore's newest Rock n Roll Chorus!
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!
Encore ROCKS is a program under the nonprofit organization Encore Creativity for Older Adults. Encore is the nation’s largest choral program for older adults with 15 Encore Chorales and 6 Encore ROCKS choruses in the DC/Baltimore area.
Jeff Dokken, Director of the Encore ROCKS program states: "What is so exciting about Encore Rocks is that it combines the high quality artistic standards of Encore with the great Rock-n-Roll music of the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's. Rock music truly lends itself to choral singing, and through our fun and intensive rehearsal process we dive deep into the melodies, harmonies, rhythms, history, and culture of this wonderful musical form. And I cannot emphasize strongly enough how incredibly awesome the concerts are!"
Doug Byerly, Director of Anne Arundel Community College’s Concert Choir, AACC Opera and Director of Music for Baltimore’s Archdiocese, is the conductor for Encore ROCKS Towson.
There are no auditions and singers may be seated for both rehearsals and performances.
Come have the time of your life!!!
