Thinking Aloud
Encore Choir
For the most part, we like other people to do our singing for us. We leave it to the large-scale professional choirs, celebrity pop stars, and serial YouTube sensations to enrich our lives with creativity and talent. Encore seeks to reverse that trend by providing older adults an artistic environment where they can gain arts education and performance opportunities under a professional artist. Host Marcus Smith talks with Jeanne Kelly, the executive director of Encore, about the program and the opportunities it affords those who want to sing purely for the sake of singing.—Original airdate: 7/29/2013
