MMC singing at Essen Haus Madison February 13, 2010
We had a fine turnout tonight for our 158th anniversary Stiftungsfest at Essen Haus, Madison. (February 13, 2010) We sang a few songs (using our nice song binders – thanks, Tim) and made it a challenge for the wait staff to take orders!
The spirits and conviviality are evident from these pictures.

Here’s a great email to share:
Hello Tim and all members! Just wanted to let you know that you have some new fans down here in Tucson Arizona!!! I took your CD with me to several Christmas parties and they loved it! You guys sound awesome! I grew up listening to the Maennerchor when I was a kid. My father sent me the CD and I was amazed – names like Clasen, Essert, Hartwig, Seaman, and the Bodensteins?!? WOW!!! I can’t believe they are still together and going strong! It’s wonderful – keep it up – it sounds great! I enjoyed hearing the old favorites and I hope to get back to Madison someday to see a concert in person. Happy Holidays to everyone!!! Sincerely, Kirsten Bausch (Walter’s daughter!) …….LEBE, LIEBE, LACHE !!!
