Apply for an opportunity to learn, grow, and transform at the idyllic campus of Gilmour Academy. 
Application opens on NOVEMBER 1st.

The faculty at ENCORE were the most inspiring musicians I have ever worked with. I have never been to a festival where I became so close with the entire faculty, and I have never been so inspired or motivated like I was at encore. It is truly a wonderful place and it taught me so much. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything.
