Encore's Annual Meet and Greet

This year will be Encore's 21st year of offering a music program to homeschooled students.

Join us on Friday, August 25th, at First Southern Baptist Church - 4300 W. 6th Street, in Lawrence, KS - for our annual "meet and greet"  This is an opportunity to meet our directors, learn about our program, and try band and string instruments.

We are excited to have Manning Music Store join us again this year. They will have a display of instruments to look over and try. They have a rental program as well as sell the instruments.

Scroll down the grey section of this page for information about fees. Groups and the schedule is still being tweaked for this year. A link to our online enrollment form will be posted as soon as updates are made.

We are a year-long program - divided by semesters, to make fee payment easier. We begin meeting on Friday, September 8th - location is FSBC - 4300 W. 6th Street. We have two recitals, at the end of each semester.

 Contact Martha Bachert - - with questions.

Encore WILL Meet Tomorrow

Hello Encore Families:

The parking lot is quite slick this evening and wanted to warn-so you can proceed with caution when walking/driving in.   Please don’t take any chances if you are worried about roads.  

There is a back driveway with a lesser incline, and you can find it with the following directions:

Just east of the main driveway on 6th street  (between 1st Southern and HyVee Fast and Fresh) turn north/right off of 6th street onto Eldridge and then left on Eldridge/Overland.  It may appear to be a dead end but turns south into the north entrance of the parking lot.  

Spring is coming .........
