Welcome to the Madison Maennerchor Website. We very much appreciate your interest in our organization.
The Madison Maennerchor is the oldest continuously active German men’s choir in Wisconsin and the 2nd oldest in the United States. We carry on the culture, heritage and folklore of Germany through our singing and fellowship. The choir was founded in 1852, just 4 years after Wisconsin becoming a State, and we continue the tradition with a membership of about 40 singers and associate members.
If you would like to visit us and/or join the choir, come to one of our practices. We practice each Thursday night at 8:00 pm at Turner Hall in Madison. After practice we have a social hour with beer, brandy, sandwiches, and bakery. You can also click on our calendar below on this page and come to one of our performances.
