Encore, an organization comprised of past Presidents of all the Affiliate Committees of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association was founded in 1965. It was spearheaded by Jessie Mae Nethery, outgoing President of the Glendale Committee, with much encouragement from Dorothy Chandler.
The group's purpose is to support and assist the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association in its sponsorship of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Encore's highlight event is an annual Orchestra Party. This event honors the orchestra members and allows the group an opportunity to thank the musicians.
