The Encounter Youth Choir from Alton, IL will celebrate its 46th season with a summer “TOUR” to Estes Park, Colorado, and perform three concerts in late July and early August. Encounter will perform songs from the musical "All That is Within Me” by Travis Cottrell on Sunday July 29 at 7pm at Rocky Mountain Church, Monday July 30 at 7:30pm at Performance Park in Estes Park, and on Wednesday August 1 at 7pm at Hempel Auditorium at the YMCA of the Rockies. All performances are free and open to the public.
The Encounter choir is made up of 85 high school students from seven schools representing more than 30 Alton (IL) area churches. It also has 16 adult Sponsors who do much of the behind the scenes work from fundraising, leading small group scripture study, running sound, driving students, and more. Its mission is to spread the Gospel through music, service, fellowship and participation in the life of the church.
