On Sunday, October 23rd Encore celebrated our 20th anniversary in concert at St. Andrews Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi.
St. Andrews was a beautiful place to play and had a wonderful audience.
We're looking forward to our next concert on Monday, November 14th.
Heard through the grape vine about the auditions:
"Wow! What a parade of talent through today's auditions. Thanks to the volunteers and to Jerry Luckhardt for making today happen."
- Nicholas Ellison, Encore President

This will be an exciting season of celebration. We’ll enjoy performances honoring repertoire that spans centuries in tribute to two decades of great performances from the Encore Wind Ensemble.
I hope you will be able to join us!
