Encore Choral Institute and Public Performance
Encore Creativity for Older Adults to Offer Choral Institute at St. Mary's College of Maryland
June 18 to 22, 2013
Encore Creativity for Older Adults is pleased to return to the beautiful campus of St. Mary's College of Maryland in Historic St. Mary's City to present the 6th Annual Summer Choral Institute from June 18-22, 2013.
Encore Creativity for Older Adults, the nation's largest and fastest growing choral program for older adults, offers the only summer "arts sleep away camp" for older adults, 55+ who want to learn, sing and perform.
Singers will begin their day with a stretch/Yoga class followed by a full choral rehearsal. After lunch singers will choose from a vocal technique class, a choral sectional, or free time. An afternoon choral rehearsal will follow. Repertoire will include spirituals, oratorio selections, songs from The American Songbook and Broadway. All levels of vocal experience are welcomed and singers may sit for rehearsals and performance.
The program will culminate in a grand finale performance on Saturday, June 22 at 1:30 pm for friends, family and the public at the Historic St. Mary's Hall.
Students will stay in dorm suites and dine in the college dining hall. Evening entertainment will include recitals and an outdoor concert by the Chesapeake Orchestra on the banks of the beautiful St. Mary's river on Friday night.
Local St. Mary's and Calvert County area residents are warmly invited to attend as commuters.
