Encore Chorale

Encore Chorale is for anyone age 55 and older who enjoys singing or making new friends. Men and women of any skill level are welcome! Directed by Matt Gaunitz, NISOM's Encore Chorale features a fun, social atmosphere and songs you know and love. No experience or audition is required. The group gives frequent informal performances plus community concerts. 

Think you can't sing? Think again! New research out of Northwestern University suggests that singing accurately is not so much a talent as a learned skill. Plus, Swedish researchers have found that singing in a choir affects the heart through singing in unison and controlled breathing! Learn more about all the health benefits of music at Why Music?

NISOM's Encore Chorale was established in 2014 and is a member of the national organization Encore Creativity for Older Adults. Encore is dedicated to providing an excellent and accessible artistic environment for older adults, 55 and over, regardless of experience or ability, who seek arts education and performance opportunities under a professional artist. 

Encore has completed the 2016-2017 season and is on haitus for the summer.
