Encore Chorale of Fairfax welcomes all older adults to a new season of singing this fall

The Encore Chorale of Fairfax is taking registrations now for the fall season of singing beginning September 5. No auditions or experience are required. The ensemble will meet each Tuesday from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at St. George’s United Methodist Church, 4910 Ox Rd, Fairfax, VA 22030.

The Encore Chorale of Fairfax is eager to welcome new and returning singers to the fall rehearsal season. The chorale promises to bring joyful moments of spirited singing for older adults with a diverse and challenging repertoire of music. The chorale will sing uplifting renditions of choral favorites to ring in the holiday season, from classics such as “Hallelujah Chorus” (from Messiah, ed. Larry Pugh) and “Winter Wonderland” (arr. John Rutter) to the modern pieces “On this Silent Night” by Sarah Quartel and “Stars Shall I Find” by Victor C. Johnson.

“Our ensembles are the perfect way to unite in the friendship and community that singing builds,” said Joshua Vickery, CEO of Encore Creativity. “There are so many physical, mental, and emotional benefits from singing, and we are honored to help create a world where all older adults have a place in the arts.”

Registration for the entire rehearsal season is $190 per person and includes sheet music and a CD highlighting the singer’s voice part. A scholarship program is available to offset the cost of tuition for those needing financial assistance. For more information or to register, go to
