Description

Encore Creativity, the nation’s largest choral organization for older adults, just finishing its 15th season, has added a new location in Wilmington, Del. To give prospective singers an idea of what a typical rehearsal would encompass, there will be a FREE choral rehearsal and OPEN HOUSE on Saturday, June 25th from 9:30 am to noon at the historic Trinity Episcopal Church, 1108 North Adams Street at the corner of Delaware Avenue & North Adams Street.

The session is open to anyone 55 and older. No prior singing experience is necessary. The morning will include vocal warm-ups, tips on vocal technique and the rehearsal of fun choral works. Attendees can try out Encore’s newest singing ensemble to see if they would like to join the Encore Chorale of Wilmington’s weekly Thursday morning rehearsals starting this coming September. “Bring a friend, or two, or three and just explore your voice – no obligation. Just have fun,” said David Simmons, conductor of the Encore Chorale of Wilmington and the music director at Trinity Episcopal Church. “Come for the entire morning or just part of the session. We’d love to meet you.”

Founded in 2007, Encore Creativity for Older Adults, an Annapolis, Md.-based nonprofit,  has more than 1,200 singers in 26 in-person ensembles in Maryland, Virginia, Washington D.C. and New York City, including Chorales and ROCKS – rock and roll choruses – and Sentimental Journey Singers, a choir for those with early Alzheimer’s and memory impairments, plus a vibrant online university, summer camp, winter retreat and travel abroad programs.
