MMC concerts presented at Turner Hall and various locations

Christmas Concert 2017

On Sunday December 10, 2017 we had our annual Christmas Concert & Dinner at Madison Turner Hall. It was a very festive occasion despite the lack of snow on the ground. We had a record crowd for the concert and the dinner afterward. Thanks to everyone who helped plan, set up, take tickets or clean up. Special thanks to Sankt Nikolaus for fitting us into his busy schedule.

Thanks to everyone who attended. We hope to see you again next year!

Here are some photos of the event. As always, click on the thumbnail image to see the full photo.

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.

Kommers 2017

The 2017 WSB Kommers was held on May 20th at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary in Kenosha. Below are a few photos from the competition. Our hosts MGV Kenosha were the eventual winners; we placed third.

International Fest 2017

On Saturday February 25th we sang at the International Festival in the Overture Center. this year we performed on the stage of the Capitol Theater instead of the Rotunda Room where we performed the last few years. After we sang, quite a few of us headed over to the Buck & Badger for a drink. Or perhaps two.

Here are some photos from the day. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo.

Christmas Songs

We were disappointed that we had to cancel this year’s Christmas concert due to the weather. So at our rehearsal last week we recorded three of the songs we would have sung at the concert as our gift to you. Frohe Weihnachten!

Christmas Concert Canceled

Due to the winter storm that is bearing down on southern Wisconsin, we have decided to cancel our annual Christmas concert and dinner.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but with the hazardous road conditions forecast for Sunday, we think it’s better if everyone stays off the roads as much as possible.
