Easter Sunday marked the beginning of the 2012 concert season for Encounter. Encounter is an ecumenical high school youth choir that has performed throughout the Riverbend area since 1972. The group is based out of Alton’s Main Street United Methodist Church but they will perform at a number of churches around the area including stops in Godfrey and Dow before they travel to the Washington D.C. area this summer.
Encounter Music Director, Eddie Hitchcock says that their performances include more than just singing and that every year offers something different.
Their next performance will be on April 15 at Jerseyville United Methodist Church at 6pm, then April 22 at the Upper Alton Baptist Church at 6pm.
