We are also offering an online-only rehearsal option with our fabulous conductors for Winter/Spring; presenting both daytime and evening sessions. These rehearsals begin the week of January 24, 2022. Zoom links will be provided to you in advance to join these rehearsals.
DAYTIME: Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. for Chorale (starting January 25, 2022); Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. for ROCKS (starting January 27, 2022)
EVENING: Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. for Chorale (starting January 25, 2022); Thursday at 6:30 p.m. for ROCKS (starting January 27, 2022)
Please note: If you register after January 14, you have 3 options for obtaining your music:
1) Arrange for pick-up at the Encore Annapolis office;
2) Have it shipped to you for a fee of $10.00;
3) Access digital music online until the first in-person rehearsal the week of February 7.
To continue this offering and make it sustainable we had to adjust tuition slightly. The cost of tuition for all online rehearsals with the option to perform live at Strathmore is $160 per chorale and $160 per ROCKS offering.
Another adjustment we have made is if you choose to do an in person chorale or ROCKS and add an additional online experience with either chorale or ROCKS it will be the full tuition cost of both offerings. Tuition cost for (1) in person season and (1) online season will be $350 total.
- All live and online rehearsals are separate from a new and expanded Encore University program. Registration is now open for EU as well. There are many fun and informative classes and workshops for you to explore.
