The Forest-Aires’s 2012 ENCORE! performance – 50th year – featured the best of the best music and dance from the past 50 years on stage. Current and former members, as well as scholarship winners of all ages, were invited to participate in this journey down memory lane. ENCORE! was held at the Anderson Center where seats were sold out all three performances of the show. The singers demonstrated a variety of styles of music, such as: traditional, jazz, European, Caribbean, and novelty.
Proceeds from ENCORE! fund voice scholarships for local high school students. To date, The Forest-Aires has provided more than 350 students with voice lessons. Winning students are featured and sing solos in the spring shows. Another six students will receive scholarships for the next school year and each year thereafter.
