Encore Creativity for Older Adults Opens Registration to All for Fall Older adults who love to sing can join in song this fall with Encore Creativity for Older Adults, the nation’s largest choral arts organization for adults 55 and older. The fall season of singing is open for registration for all older adults across the nation. No auditions are required. Interested singers can register by calling (301) 261-5747. Encore Creativity for Older Adults is eager to welcome all older adults interested in singing to a new season of rehearsals beginning in early September.
