Encore University Fall Semester - Final Call for Registrations (ROCKS and Sentimental Journey Singers Only)

Encore University LogoAs it remains inadvisable to resume normal choral singing activities, Encore will continue the "Encore University" concept through December 2020.

All-inclusive tuition is $170 for 15 weeks of classes, including sheet music, optional rehearsal CD and opportunity to participate in our big Holiday Virtual Concert

A frequently asked question as we continued rehearsals in the spring, was "why are we rehearsing when we will not be performing?" While there were several reasons, we are happy to announce we are planning a performance in December.  We are in discussion with a production company to produce a virtual concert.  More details will be forthcoming.


Registration is now open only for ROCKS and Sentimental Journey Singers. Chorale is full.  If you wish to register for either of these programs email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Sing With Encore!

KEL 6318 1Encore Chorales are non-auditoned choral groups for adults over the age of 55.  There are currently fifteen Encore Chorales in the metropolitan Baltimore-Washington area. In 2018, Encore added a Chorale in Mid-Town Manhattan.  For each fifteen-week semester (Sept-Dec and Jan-May), all Chorales rehearse the same music. Upon completion of the semester, multiple chorales come together to perform concerts. All concerts are free and open to the public, and are held at prestigious high-visibility locations such as the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage and DAR Constitution Hall.  On December 26, 2019, Encore Chorales performed in the Concert Hall at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.  This performance/date is now an Encore annual tradition.

Singers are seated for rehearsals; they may also be seated for concerts if preferred.  Rehearsals are 90 minutes. 

Encore Chorale's repertoire may include selections from the American Songbook, Broadway show music, classical and opera, and secular or religious holiday music.

Encore is tuition-based. Tuition varies with locations. In addition to the fifteen weeks of rehearsals, led by a professional choral conductor, tuition covers all sheet music and a rehearsal CD highlighting the singer's voice part.
