"I cannot speak highly enough about Encore. It has taken me from a music listener with no formal training to a singer who understands how to breathe; how to sing and hold a note – despite lung issues. I had no idea how to read or follow music when I first came; it took me two seasons, but now I can follow along and understand the meaning of more than a handful of those “squiggles and lines”. I’ve made new friends and gained enough confidence to sing out loud – outside of practice! But most beneficial has been the joy I feel each week at rehearsal." – Encore Singer
At Encore, we strive to make each rehearsal an uplifting and life-affirming experience. We know participation in our programs has positive effects on the mind, body and soul and creates a sense of community. Encore performances are thrilling and an opportunity to share with the public the joy of the Encore experience.
While we endeavor to make the Encore experience available and affordable to more and more people, we also recognize that roughly 25% of our annual budget comes in the form of charitable gifts. In other words, we need your support!
Your gifts help make all of the following possible:
- Professional conductors with excellent musicianship
- Professional instrumentalists to perform with us for concerts
- Keep our concerts free and open to the public
- Exceptional venues for rehearsals and performances
- Maintain the level of programmatic excellence that Encore has delivered for more than a decade
Your gift, at whatever amount is personally meaningful to you, will make a significant impact. Please send your gift today…Encore is counting on your support.

In addition, there are many more ways to support Encore, including stock transfer, IRA charitable rollover, and naming Encore as a beneficiary of your estate.
