Summer Singing on Maryland’s Eastern Shore

Join Us at Washington College in Historic Chestertown, Maryland for the 11th Annual Encore Chorale Summer Choral Institute from June 24-28, 2018


Encore will again return to the beautiful campus of Washington College in the historic town of Chestertown, MD for the Annual Summer Choral Institute.  In five days Encore’s experienced conductors will mold campers, 55+, into a polished chorale ensemble ready to perform. 

Each day will begin with breakfast to energize us for a morning that will include movement class, followed by a full choral rehearsal in the superb concert hall in the Daniel Z. Gibson Center for the Arts. After lunch there will be an opportunity to enjoy the surroundings, relax, or participate in vocal technique classes or sectionals – it’s your choice. A full afternoon rehearsal rounds out the daytime schedule. Singers may be seated for rehearsals and performances.

All meals will be provided in the campus dining room with a variety of offerings to please every palate.

In the evening, we will keep you entertained with exciting performances by artists of local and national reputation.

The institute will conclude Thursday afternoon when singers perform a choral concert for friends, family and the local community in the concert hall. A truly grand finale!

Singers will find comfortable accommodations in the residence halls with suites that include single bedrooms with a twin bed in each, shared bath, and common areas with kitchens and lounges. Couples, or a singer with guest, may elect a double room with two twin beds in a suite setting.

WC-PeopleDon’t miss this wonderful opportunity to work with dynamic conductor Jeanne Kelly, Founder and Artistic Director of Encore. David Lang, conductor of the Encore Chorale of Reston, will be performing an organ recital.

The repertoire for the week will include classical selections, Broadway favorites, American Songbook and more. A rehearsal CD and music will be provided in advance to assist singers in preparing for the program.
