Encore is Now a Combined Federal Campaign Approved Charity

ShowSomeLove BlueEncore Creativity has recently been designated as an official charity of the Chesapeake Bay Area Combined Federal Campaign. For those of you who are federal employees, you may make your pledge via a payroll deduction and it is easy to renew your gift each year. For retirees and survivors, you can now make a one-time contribution or a recurring gift that is automatically deducted from your retirement annuity. 

The 2019 Combined Federal Campaign runs from September 9, 2019 through January 10, 2020 via the CFC giving portal.

 Encore’s CFC Charity ID 49601.

Perhaps you are not a federal employee, retiree or survivor, but we imagine that you know some folks who are, and might be willing to support an organization that YOU care about. We encourage you to share this information with them, letting them know of the positive impact Encore makes in the world.

Spring 2019 Semester Singers' Program Evaluation Report Released.

Survey S2019 CoverIn the most recent Singers' Program Evaluation Survey, 97.3% of survey respondents were “very satisfied” or “satisfied” with their overall choral experience, an impressive level of happiness with the Encore Chorale and Encore ROCKS programs.  Encore’s leadership has thoroughly reviewed the results of the survey, especially comments received, and will use the results to identify opportunities to improve Encore’s choral programs (some have already happened) and administrative support. Actions will be taken to implement applicable improvements as appropriate and as discussed in this report.
