The Evanston Encore Chorale, a community chorus of older adults, presents “Sounds of the Season” at The Merion at 7:00 pm on Friday, December 16, and at Three Crowns Park at 3:00 pm on Thursday, December 29. “Sounds of the Season” features familiar carols, some in traditional arrangements and several with humorous and rhythmic twists (think “We Three Kings” with a Brubeck beat). The chorus is led by Jonathan Miller, known to Evanston audiences as the artistic director of the acclaimed professional vocal ensemble Chicago a cappella.
After the holiday break, Encore will begin weekly rehearsals for the winter/spring season, featuring songs from the Great American Songbook. For more information about the next session, visit www.encoreillinois.org or call (630) 441-5157.
