Encore Travels the World

HavanaEncoreandcarIn 2008, near the end of Encore's inaugural year, 25 Encore singers crossed the Atlantic on board the magnificent Queen Mary 2.  Every morning, they rehearsed their music and, on the final day of the voyage, performed a concert at high tea in the Queen's Room. Thus began a tradition. Every year since, Encore singers have traveled the world exploring and performing.  Encore singers have cruised the Caribbean, taken river cruises across Europe, including Austria, Belgium, The Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Morocco, Slovakia, and Switzerland. Most recently, Encore traveler explored Spain and Portugal. 

Encore's travel highligths have included singing at the American Cemetery in Normandy; a concert in an awe-inspiring abey in Rouen, France; performances with the American Festival in Prague, the Melk Abbey, Vienna, and with the Bitburger Brewery Men's Choir, and riding in vintage cars in Havana, Cuba (photo), to name a few.

Current membership in an Encore choral program is not required to travel with Encore.  All you need is the desire to sing and a willingness to learn the music we will perform.  With that said, we invite you to come along as we discover the world!

Encore Travel - Planning Ahead for 2019 and 2020

Encore surveyed the participants in the 2018 Canada concert tour:  "Where do you want to go next?" 

London City 10First choice was London, with an optional crossing on the Queen Mary 2.  So, the information gathering and planning for 2019 has begun.  Watch for more information soon.

Running a close second in the survey was a river cruise from Normandy to Paris.  Encore did this trip several years ago and it was a hit, with performances at the American Cemetery in Normandy and a collaborative concert with the Rouen City Hall Choir in a spectacular Abbey in Rouen.  So, Encore will be planning to revisit in 2020.
