When the Monona Terrace was being built, the public was offered the opportunity to purchase commemorative tiles for placement on the Terrace Roof Garden.

The other day I finally had a chance to locate (again) the tile purchased by the Madison Männerchor at the time.

It is located in the southeast corner of the Roof Garden, near the sign for the Lake Vista Cafe (see picture).

 

Swissfest 2017

On November 5, 2017 we traveled to Monroe to sing as a guest choir at the 51st Annual Swissfest. the event was held at Turner Hall in Monroe and included the Monroe Swiss Singers, the Maennerchor New Glarus and the Jodlerklub New Glarus.

It was a great event and I think we had a great time both performing and listening to the other choirs and other performers. The acoustics in the Grand Hall were great. Afterward, we headed downstairs to the Ratskeller for some refreshments.

The Madison Männerchor was mentioned in two places in the Winter 2015-2016 edition of the the “Wisconsin Magazine of History”.

In the article, “Green Turtle Soup, Lobster Newburg and Roman Punch”, the MMC is referred to as “Suitable entertainment…” on page 19 and listed on the reproduced menu from 1901 on page 21.

WSB Sangerfest 2014

We’ve received two more photos of the Capitol concert from Geoff Kroening:

To: Wisconsin Sängerbezirk Presidents, Secretaries and others

Attached are two pictures of the WSB Chöre performing in the State Capitol Rotunda.  Margot Paap’s son-in-law took these photos and Margot gave me professionally printed images which I scanned for electronic posting on the Milwaukee Liederkranz facebook page.  The scanned images from the vivid color prints turned out well and I thought I would share them via email to all the WSB clubs.  Please forward and share them with your singers.

The photos are below – click on the image for a larger version of the photo. I’ve also shared the Milwaukee Liederkranz Facebook photo gallery on our own Facebook page.

Kommers 2014 Part 3

We concluded Kommers / Saengerfest 2014 by performing a short concert in the Capitol Rotunda. Afterward, we headed over to the Essen Haus to enjoy some beer, brats and music. Thankfully this all occurred before the rain returned.

Here are some pictures – as always, click on the image to see a larger version of the photo.

Kommers 2014 part 2

After the morning’s competition and dinner, there was a short rehearsal for the evening concert (and the Sunday concert at the Capitol) and then some free time; the amount of free time depending on whether you had signed up to make sandwiches or not.

In the evening the combined choirs sang a few song, ate some sandwiches and had a dance.
