Encore is coming to the Rocky Mountains July 19-23, 2019!
Encore is joining forces with our Denver area affiliates to bring the Encore "Camp Experience" Out West. The Encore Chorale and Encore ROCKS Summer Institute at Colorado State University in Fort Collins is our newest summer "camp."
Why Fort Collins? According to their visitors' web site, "you can get a feel for settler life in the well-preserved downtown Fort Collins district that includes over twenty restored historical buildings that are part of both national and local designated historic districts. Included is the Northern Hotel, a Fort Collins landmark that was restored to its former “Art Deco” elegance. While wandering about downtown you’re likely to notice a strong resemblance to Disneyland’s Main Street USA: we’re proud to say that it is modeled after our own Downtown Fort Collins! The alleys have been upgraded into European style walkways with potted flowers and Tivoli lights making the journey to the next place a beautiful experience of its own."
Leading the program will be Jeanne Kelly, Encore's Founder and Artistic Director, and Brian Leatherman, conductor of Encore's Highlands Ranch and Littleton Chorales. Participants will sing both traditional choral repertoire and Rock & Roll hits. Singers will perform a final concert in the beautiful Griffin Concert Hall. You can't beat the beautiful Rockies and fabulous music!
Singers will stay in Colorado State University's modern dormitories and dine in the University Dining Hall. Following check-in, singers will enjoy their first rehearsal and then celebrate with a grand opening dinner.
Each day will begin with breakfast to energize us for a morning that will include movement class, followed by a full choral rehearsal. After lunch there will be an opportunity to enjoy the surroundings, relax, or participate in vocal technique classes or sectionals – it’s your choice.
A full afternoon rehearsal rounds out the daytime schedule. Singers may be seated for rehearsals and performances.
All meals will be provided in the campus dining room with a variety of offerings to please every palate. In the evening, we will keep you entertained with exciting performances by artists of national and international reputation.
Singers will find comfortable accommodations in the residence halls with suites that include single bedrooms with a twin bed in each, shared bath, and common areas with kitchens and lounges. Couples, or a singer with guest, may elect a double room with two twin beds in a suite setting.
