Langston Brown

Join Encore Chorale at Langston Brown Senior Center

Join One of Encore's "Original" Chorales!

Begun in 2001 as one of the Creativity and Aging study chorales, singing at Langston Brown actually pre-dates the creation of Encore. 

The class, designed for adults 55 years and above is instructive as well as enjoyable. Learn proper breathing techniques and how to improve your voice through tone production as Encore Founder Jeanne Kelly  and new Encore conductor, Brian Gendron, guides participants through weekly rehearsals in four-part singing. Langston Brown's Chorale Master is Mary Cottrell. The season will conclude with performances with other Encore Chorales at locations in the MD/DC/Northern Virginia area. Be a part of a true harmonic convergence-if you can talk, you can sing!
