Encore's Founder and Artistic Director, Jeanne Kelly, traveled from "The Mother Ship" in the Washington, DC area to spend time with the South Suburban and Highlands Ranch Encore Chorales, led by Brian Leatherman and Cindy Runkel.

On Friday, March 2, 2018, she attended a combine rehearsal of the two chorales in Highlands Ranch. She led them in rehearsing the Les Miserables Medley they are preparing for their spring concert and was very impressed by what she heard. She commended Brian and Cindy Runkel for doing an outstanding job growing the programs and maintaining the level of professionalism that Encore strives to achieve.

On Monday, March 5th, Jeanne also attended the regularly scheduled rehearsal of the South Suburban Encore Chorale - another enjoyable and satisfying experience.
