Encore Chorale of Wilmington for Older Adults – First Rehearsal
September 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Encore Creativity for Older Adults, the nation’s largest and fastest growing choral organization for adults over 55, welcomes singers to its new chorale in Wilmington, Delaware. The new chorale will be conducted by David Simmons and will take place at Trinity Episcopal Church. No auditions are necessary–just a love of singing and a desire to improve your physical, mental, and spiritual health!
Rehearsals will take place once a week on Thursdays for 90 minutes. Tuition is $190 for the semester and culminates with a holiday concert that is free and open to the public. Encore provides an accessible arts education and performance opportunities for older adults regardless of ability or experience. All singers are conducted by professional artists with years of experience working with singers of all skill levels.
Founded in 2007 by Jeanne Kelly during an NIH-funded study to address the mental and physical health benefits of singing for older adults, Encore Creativity for Older Adults now has more than 1,000 singers in 30 programs across the nation.
