All concerts are free and open to the public, and are held at prestigious high-visibility locations such as the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage and DAR Constitution Hall. Singers are seated for rehearsals; they may also be seated for concerts if preferred. Rehearsals are 90 minutes.

Encore Chorale’s repertoire may include selections from the American Songbook, Broadway show music, classical and opera, and secular or religious holiday music.
