Kommers 2022

The WSB Kommers competition was held in Kenosha on April 23, 2022; this was the first Kommers since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. The event was hosted by MGV Harmonia and was held at the Holy Rosary Parish in the school gym.

It was a beautiful day and it was great to see all of the choirs together again! MGV Harmonia, who had won the last competition in 2019, came in first again this year. Gesangverein Concordia was second and Madison Maennerchor was third.

Here are some photos of the Madison Maennerchor performing at Kommers. Thanks to Geoff for sending the photos! As always, click on the thumbnail to see the larger photo.
