Encore youth choir


Auditioned Choirs for Grades 2 - 12

Encore Youth Choir has four main choirs divided by age and experience.

They rehearse September-April and perform in at least three major concerts a year.


Goals - Each Encore Youth choir member will...

  • Be respected, welcomed and valued as an individual
  • Develop his/her singing, musicianship, and music theory skills in a fun,
    non-threatening, educational environment
  • Interact with and be exposed to music, languages,
    and history from other cultures and traditions
  • Perform music which is of the highest quality,
    and is challenging and exciting to learn
  • Contribute to the cultural life of his/her community and
  • surrounding areas through concerts, tours, and festivals


Choir Tuition: $525-$625
There is a retreat fee depending on the choir level.  Uniform must be purchased.  Tours are an additional expense.

Financial Aid
Encore Music Academy will never turn away an enthusiastic young singer who cannot afford the tuition. Currently 20% of choristers receive some form of tuition assistance.  Tuition payment plans are also offered. Financial awards can be granted up to 85% of annual tuition.

Retreats
Cantabile and Di Canto Choirs go on an overnight retreat each fall at a waterpark in Lake Geneva. Aria and Bella Voce Choirs have a day retreat in the fall. The importance of this time to the success of the choir experience cannot be emphasized enough.


Tours
Tours are an integral part of Encore Youth Choir programming. From a day tour of local schools, to a one-week Encore tour to Europe, all auditioned choirs have the opportunity to go on tour as local, national, and international musical ambassadors!
