Encore Chorale of Wilmington for Older Adults – First Rehearsal
September 8, 2022 @ 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 program in Wilmington, Delaware. The Encore Chorale of Wilmington will meet Thursdays from 10 AM to 11:30 AM and will be conducted by David Simmons. Rehearsals begin on September 8 and will be held once a week across a fifteen week semester. The chorale welcomes all singers 55 and over who are interested in joining.
Tuition for the entire semester is $190 and culminates in a holiday concert that is free and open to the public. No rehearsals are necessary–just a love for singing and a desire to join a community and improve your physical and mental well-being!
Encore’s mission is to provide an accessible arts education to all older adults who seek it, regardless of experience or training. Chorales are conducted by professional artists adept at working with singers of all experience 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.
