As the Winter-Spring semester is just beginning, it's not too early to be thinking about summer! Unlike many choral organizations, Encore doesn't take the summer off. Every year, Encore offers five- or six-day Summer Institutes, or "Summer Sleep-Away Camps," as the singers like to call them. The days are consumed by morning exercise or yoga classes, choral rehearsals, sight reading classes, and vocal technique workshops, just to name a few of the activities. In the evening, Encore brings in a variety of musical performers, from classical, to American Song Book, World Music and more. This is also a great opportunity for singers to socialize and get to know each other.
Encore has been returning annually to Chautauqua Institution, NY for eleven years, and for the past several years to Washington College in beautiful Chestertown, MD. In 2018, Encore offered its first-ever Rock & Roll Camp in historic Annapolis, MD. Participation in Encore's summer programs is not restricted to current Encore singers. Anyone over the age of 55 with a desire to participate is welcome to attend.
So lock in your plans now. Register for one or more of these great summer experiences. Everything you need to know and to register is HERE.
