Encore Club

The Encore Club is an organization of Wahlert Catholic High School supporters who help provide funds specifically for performing arts projects. This includes the vocal, instrumental and drama departments. The Encore Club purchases items that can be used by the school for many years. We do not purchase costumes or travel or entry fees. Some of the items we have been able to donate include:

  • Air conditioning and ventilation for the music hall.
  • A new grand piano for concerts and Masses in the gymnasium.
  • Show choir platforms.
  • Funds to fix and update band equipment.
  • Acoustical band shells and wireless microphones.
  • Construction of the green room for the R.C. and Celeste Wahlert Theater.

How We Raise Money

All funds raised by the Encore Club are strictly used for performing arts endeavors. We raise money through:

Annual membership dues ($100)
