Dear Friends and Family,

Since the advent of the coronavirus, Encore Vocal Ensemble has canceled all in-person singing rehearsals and postponed all performances until we receive word from our leaders that social distancing is no longer necessary and large groups may again meet. The safety and wellbeing of our membership and the community at large is our priority and will remain so for the duration. 

Though it saddens us to be unable to perform for you as we would in normal circumstances, we have chosen to see this time as an opportunity that we would not otherwise have had to pool our creative juices and focus on our next productions. And we have cause for some excitement: Encore’s 10-year anniversary is coming in Spring 2021, and we’ve already begun laying the groundwork for a blockbuster celebration of our first decade. We are committed to continuing to provide you with the best entertainment San Diego has to offer, and this show will be one for the ages!
