All guests, including children of all ages, attending events inside Strathmore’s venues must show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19, or a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the start of the performance, and a photo ID. Masks are required to be worn during the performance and while at the Music Center.
Encore, the nation's largest and fastest growing choral organization for adults over the age of 55 is thrilled to celebrate their 15th Anniversary on stage at Strathmore’s Music Center. Based in Annapolis, Encore has 17 Chorales and 6 Encore ROCKS rock & roll choruses in the metropolitan Baltimore-Washington area, as well as a Chorale in New York City. Encore's newest program, begun in September 2019, is the Sentimental Journey Singers (SJS) for individuals with early-stage Alzheimer's or other memory impairment. Encore singers number nearly 1,500 across the country, a number that continues to grow as new programs are added.
Encore's mission is to provide an excellent and accessible artistic environment for older adults, regardless of experience or ability, who seek arts education and performance opportunities under a professional artist. The primary goal of Encore Creativity for Older Adults is to offer our choral program to adults over the age of 55, an underserved population in the arts, throughout the country.
