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.

The Beloit Chorale performed at Bethel Lutheran Church in Madison on Saturday July 21st. This is the Chorale’s first season and we were pleased to have the opportunity to sponsor the concert.
This is a recording of one of the songs that the chorale performed. It is “Stars” by Erik Esenvalds.
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).
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.
Here are some photos; as always, click on the thumbnail to see the larger image.
The Madison Männerchor was mentioned in two places in the Winter 2015-2016 edition of the the “Wisconsin Magazine of History”.
