Encore ROCKS


Encore ROCKS ensembles are non-auditioned rock & roll groups for adults 55+.

Most Encore singers grew up in the 50s, 60s and 70s.
So Encore decided a rock & roll chorus would top the charts – and it has.

Song Selection

ROCKS repertoire may include songs of Elvis, The Beachboys, Led Zeppelin, Motown, and Woodstock. Such “contemporary” groups as Bon Jovi, U2 and Queen have also made it into the ROCKS concert repertoire.


Singers are seated for rehearsals; they may also be seated for concerts if preferred.
Rehearsals are typically 90 minutes & led by a professional choral conductor.


All concerts are free and open to the public, and are held at prestigious high-visibility locations such as the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage, DAR Constitution Hall, and Strathmore Hall.
