News and information about the new semester

Encore Homeschool Fine Arts, in Lawrence, KS, will begin our 15th year, this fall - offering a music education program to homeschooled students

Encore will be offering an opportunity to try out various band and orchestra instruments, for those wishing to join our group. We have offered this for the past six years and have found it to be successful.  Students have a chance to try any instrument that is available that day. The goal is to find a good match between the student and instrument, and move toward a great musical experience as a member of our group.

Mark your calendar for
Thursday, July 27th - from 11am to 1pm. We will meet at the Morris Baptist Center - 146 Indian Ave. - in Lawrence.  Students and their families can come and meet the directors, try string and band instruments, learn about our groups, and ask questions. The choir and pre-school music directors will be there to answer any questions as well.

No rehearsals or sewing classes, April 14th

Quick reminder - our groups do not meet this Friday, April 14th - Good Friday.

Also, I will be collecting donations to go towards gift cards for the directors. If you wish to donate to your child(s) director, have money to me by May 5th, and note which director the money is for.

We hope everyone will be coming back to Encore next year, but if you do not plan to join us, please let me know. If we don't hear from you, we assume that your family will be participating.

Remember our family referral discount - that helps us all out. If you know of a group that I can send information to, let me know. We will host  a "meet and greet" in August (date to be determined). It will be an opportunity for students to try different instruments, meet the directors, and ask questions.

See post below, concerning the upcoming Spring Recital.

Thanks for being a part of our organization - we appreciate you all!
