In-Person Choral Singing for Adults 55+ in Arlington
Arlington older adults who love to sing can join together in person when Encore Creativity for Older Adults, choral organization for adults over 55, returns to Lubber Run Community Center for the winter/spring session of its Arlington Encore Chorale, a local choral group that sings a fun and eclectic mix of music.
Encore is accepting registration now for its 15-week program that begins Jan. 11th, 2022. Conductor Dr. Ingrid Lestrud, an active educator and conductor who currently serves as the principal associate conductor for the National Children's Chorus in Washington D.C., will lead the group. No auditions are necessary. Encore’s mission is to provide an accessible arts education and performance opportunities for older adults regardless of ability or experience.
For those who prefer to sing virtually, Encore is also offering its popular Encore University, a comprehensive online program of singing plus enrichment courses in music history, music theory, dance and movement classes and more. Arlington Encore Chorale singers can combine both in-person singing with online classes.
“Singing is so uplifting for older adults, especially those who live alone, and we are thrilled to be back in Arlington with both our in-person and online programs,” said Joshua Vickery, CEO of Encore Creativity for Older Adults.Arlington Encore Chorale will meet at Lubber Run Community Center, 300 N.
