Encore ROCKS ensembles are non-auditioned rock & roll groups for adults over the age of 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.
Encore ROCKS has grown to six locations and over 250 singers
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.

Prefer Rehearsing Virtually?
All members registered for in-person singing are welcome to participate in our online-only rehearsal as well. You'll be led by a conductor on Zoom and learn the same music taught over 15 weeks in our in-person rehearsals.
Tuition covers all sheet music and a rehearsal CD highlighting the singer’s voice part and contributes to Encore’s administrative costs.
Tuition varies with locations.
