Christmas Concert & Dinner 2015

“A heartfelt thanks to all of those who attended the Madison Männerchor (MMC) Christmas concert Sunday afternoon. We very much appreciate your support and sincerely hope you had a good time in helping us celebrate the holiday season. We hope you enjoyed the concert as much as we enjoyed performing for you. For those who stayed for dinner, we hope you enjoyed the meal. It is always a treat to have good catered food like we had from Cranberry Creek and Ralph Clasen’s outstanding ham baked in sourdough.

I hope some of the men who attended the concert take us up on our concert ticket rebate offer by attending one of our Thursday night rehearsals, either in January or February. We practice every Thursday night at 8:00 pm at Madison Turner Hall. We hope to see you there. Our next practice is Thursday, January 7th at 8:00 pm. We are taking the holidays off and we have a performance this Thursday at Oakwood Village West at 7:00 pm.

Thanks again and everyone “hab ein Frohen Weihnachten und ein Guten Rutsch ins Neu Jahr.” (Merry Christmas and Happy New Year)”
