Rehearsals Suspended until April 9, 2020

We had a short meeting after our rehearsal on March 12th to discuss future rehearsals in light of the current public health emergency. Given the continuing spread of the coronavirus and the demographics of the choir, we decided to suspend rehearsals until April 9th.

Our Spring Concert is still scheduled for May 31st at Madison’s Turner Hall, but we will re-evaluate this in April.

Kommers 2019

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.

MMC rehearsal canceled 2/7/2019

 

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.

Madison Half Marathon

At Tenney Park, just past mile 11.

At Tenney Park, just past mile 11.

The Madison Marathon and Half Marathon was held on Sunday November 11, 2018, and here’s a photo of Tim (#5517) and Joe (#5583) in Tenney Park just past the Mile 11 marker. More importantly, this is just a little over 2 miles from the finish line and the beer tent.  It was a pretty cold morning, but at this point the sun had come out and the temperature had nearly gotten up to the freezing point.

The Beloit Chorale performing at Bethel Lutheran Church

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.

Olbrich Park Biergarten

On Thursday June 28, we met for our usual summer “rehearsal” at the Olbrich Park Biergarten. We had visited once last summer, and it’s a great location on the shore of Lake Monona. It’s at the south end of the park, near the Walter Street entrance.

We had some beer and some food and sang a few songs, and generally had a great time, as you can see in the photos below. We’ll definitely have to make another visit to the Biergarten soon!
