What Are Encore's Etude Events?

Encore Tours is dedicated to supporting music educators. Through professional networking events and music educator resources, we help ensemble directors develop and maintain strong music programs.

The Etude Symposium Series was created to provide music educators with both some inspiration and some resources that they could use in their everyday professional practice. Events at Etude range from workshops with renowned conductors, to receptions with networking opportunities, to concerts in your local community.
