The Sixth Annual Encore Summer Choral Institute offers the opportunity to attend the only “arts sleep away camp” for adults, age 55+ on the beautiful campus of St. Mary’s College of MD in Historic St. Mary’s City.  Participants will begin their day with a stretch/Yoga class followed by a full choral rehearsal conducted by Encore founder Jeanne Kelly and Krystal Rickard McCoy, music director of St. Maries Musica.  After lunch singers will choose from a vocal technique class, a choral sectional, or free time.  An afternoon choral rehearsal will follow.   Repertoire will include spirituals, oratorio selections, Civil War songs and Broadway.  All levels of vocal experience are welcomed and singers may sit for rehearsals and performance.  The program will culminate in a grand finale performance on Saturday, June 22 at 1:30pm for friends, family and the public at the Historic St. Mary’s Hall. Students will stay in dorm suites and dine in the college dining hall.   Evening entertainment will include recitals and an outdoor concert by the Chesapeake Orchestra on the banks of the beautiful St. Mary’s river on Friday night.  Email info@encorecreativity.org for more information or visit www.encorecreativity.org
