Calling Adults 55+ for In-Person and Online Singing and Classes this Fall
By: Encore Creativity for Older Adults
Registration is now open for Encore's three different types of choral ensembles: Encore Chorales, which perform an eclectic mix of choral music; Encore ROCKS, which perform popular hits from the 1950s to the 1980s; and Encore Sentimental Journey Singers, which serves singers with dementia and early-stage Alzheimer's. These programs can be found in 23 locations in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and New York City.
No auditions are necessary. Encore's mission is to provide an accessible arts education and performance opportunities for older adults regardless of ability or experience. "We are thrilled to return to in-person singing and live performances this fall," said Jeanne Kelly, Founder and Artistic Director of the Annapolis, Md.-based nonprofit arts organization. "Our singers not only learn the craft of singing and improve their technique, but they can now enjoy socializing and bonding with a new community of friends, which is so important."
Registration is also open for Encore University, an online series of afternoon rehearsals and classes, with many options, that meets Mondays through Thursdays, at 1:00 pm for 15 weeks. Encore University's ONLINE Fall 2021 Class Offerings begin September 7 and include: Chorale Sings/Rehearsals, ROCKS Sings/Rehearsals, Vocal Technique, A History of Jazz, Great Operatic Tenors , Music and Your Brain, and #1 Hits of the 60s and 70s.
Singers have three registration options: In-Person Rehearsals only for 15 weeks at various days and times throughout the week depending on location, Online Encore University Rehearsals and Classes only, Monday to Thursday afternoons at 1:00 pm, and both In-Person Rehearsals & Online Encore University Rehearsals and Classes. All singers, whether registering for in-person or online offerings, will receive sheet music and recorded rehearsal tracks so they can practice their parts at home.
Founded in 2007, Encore Creativity for Older Adults has 23 in-person ensembles, a vibrant online university, plus summer camp programs and international travel opportunities. For more information and pricing, visit www.encorecreativity.org or call 301-261-5747.
