Justin Jalea-WEBEncore is now a part of it – New York, New York. Encore’s first New York choral programs will open in Manhattan in March 2018. The Midtown Encore Chorale will be at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, a most prestigious location near Central Park and Rockefeller Center. Encore ROCKS Lincoln Square, Encore's Rock & Roll Chorus, will be located at the New York Society for Ethical Culture, 2 West 64th Street, right off Central Park.

Conducting both programs will be Justin Jalea, a highly qualified musician and conductor who is excited to be bringing Encore to New York. Justin has founded, and been artistic director of, several vocal ensembles in Canada and the U.S. Read more about Justin.

As the nation’s largest and fastest growing choral organization for adults over the age of 55, Encore is pleased to be continuing our growth in New York. We anticipate future program additions in and around The Big Apple.

About Encore

2014-12-23-Kennedy Center-031-1

Encore is dedicated to providing an excellent and accessible artistic environment for older adults, 55 and over, regardless of experience or ability, who seek arts education and performance opportunities under a professional artist. Encore is an IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit tax exempt organization.

All Encore programs are conducted by professional artists who will know how to get the most from their members. So come join the excitement, either as a beginner or at an advanced level. This is an excellent way to learn how to develop or improve your musical abilities, meet new friends, and look forward to an exciting performance schedule.

You’re never too old to try something new—and have the time of your life!

“I used to think that eighty was a very old age. Now I am ninety. I do not think this any more. As long as you are able to admire and to love, you are young.”― Pablo Casals

As of September 2017, Encore has fifteen Chorale locations in the DC/VA/MD area, as well as six Encore ROCKS locations. Additionally, Encore continues to expand across the nation, with Affiliate Chorales at Laurel Lake Retirement Community in Hudson, OH; Reading, PA;  Littleton and Highlands Ranch, CO; Santa Clarita, CA; and six Encore Chorales and two Encore ROCKS in the Chicago area. With over 1,200 singers, we believe we are the largest choral organization in the U.S.!

If you have sung sometime in your life, want to return to singing, or have never sung outside the shower, join our other music enthusiasts for weekly instructional class/rehearsals with our seasoned and professional conductors.

The Chorale classes, designed for adults 55 years and above, are educational as well as enjoyable. Participants learn proper breathing techniques and how to improve their voice through correct tone production as their conductor guides them through weekly rehearsals in three- and four-part singing. The season concludes with combined performances with other Chorales as well as local concerts at most Chorale locations.

Be a part of a true harmonic convergence-if you can talk, you can sing!
