Commissioning: 8th annual Encore celebration


The 2019 Encore performances, celebrating the creative expression of Western Territory youth, took place June 8 in Cerritos, California, both at the Performing Arts Center and the Sheraton Hotel, with almost 600 young people participating.

“My main concern is that these young people are doing this where they come from,” said Territorial Music Secretary Neil Smith prior to announcing the award winners. “We have almost 600 here today. In two years, at the 10th Encore, we’ll have 1,000 kids here.”

All Encore performers received a medal to commemorate their participation. This year, for the first time, the first, second and third place finishers all received trophies and had a photo taken with Territorial Commander Commissioner Kenneth G. Hodder.
