Encore! is celebrating its 15th anniversary!
Encore! is the traveling performing ensemble of the Buffalo Grove Park District fine arts adult choir, The BG Singers. This talented group of adults performs a variety of music, from jazz to pop, and from oldies to the best of Broadway.
Encore! was born in 1997, 3 years after the BG Singers presented their first concert. The BG Singers had been performing since 1993 in the Buffalo Grove area. After the third annual BG Singers concert in March of 1997, several of the singers were lamenting the fact that their “season” was again coming to an end and it seemed like a long time until September when the group would reconvene to begin work on their next concert. Why not, they thought, continue to perform highlights of their concert throughout the summer at venues in the Chicago area? The rest is history.
Since that time, Encore! has taken their show on diverse roads, including charitable organizations, summer festivals, library programs, political events, small private parties, and large venues, such as Arlington Park Race Track and Chicago’s Daley Center.Encore! continues to delight audiences each summer and during the holiday season with their very popular Holiday Show during the months of November and December. They are repeat performers at many venues and are known for their high energy and enthusiastic vocal performances.
