Some bad news this morning: we’ve heard from our friends in Plain, and Strassenfest has been cancelled due to the rain that is moving into the area.
On Sunday August 25, 2019 we had our annual “cemetery sing” outing. This is a chance for the choir to visit cemeteries where past members are buried, sing some songs and share memories of the departed. We also make a few stops along the way to visit some of the businesses that support the Madison Maennerchor.
This year we visited Roselawn Memorial Park in Monona, Resurrection Cemetery in Madison and Forest Lawn Cemetery in Madison. Below are some photos from the outing, as always please click on the thumbnail to see the full sized image. Also, for more information on our deceased members, please visit our Deceased Members page.
Kommers 2019 was held on Sunday April 7th at Hart Park in Wauwatosa. MGV Harmonia Kenosha won the competition, with the Madison Maennerchor in second place and Milwaukee Liederkranz, the 2018 winner, in third. Milwaukee Liedertafel was the host choir and the set up and food were great.

Our rehearsal on Thursday February 7, 2019 has been canceled due to weather and road conditions. With the rain, sleet and snow that we’ve had over the last two days, plus the forecast of much colder temperatures tonight, it will be dangerous to be out on the roads. So tonight’s rehearsal (and business meeting) has been canceled.
Our rehearsal on Thursday January 31, 2019 has been canceled due to weather conditions. With the forecast high temperature remaining below zero and with the chance of an inch or so of snow beginning in the evening, it’s probably best if we all stay off the roads.
