MMC concerts presented at Turner Hall and various locations

International Fest 2017

On Saturday February 25th we sang at the International Festival in the Overture Center. this year we performed on the stage of the Capitol Theater instead of the Rotunda Room where we performed the last few years. After we sang, quite a few of us headed over to the Buck & Badger for a drink. Or perhaps two.

Here are some photos from the day. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo.

Christmas Songs

We were disappointed that we had to cancel this year’s Christmas concert due to the weather. So at our rehearsal last week we recorded three of the songs we would have sung at the concert as our gift to you. Frohe Weihnachten!

Christmas Concert Canceled

Due to the winter storm that is bearing down on southern Wisconsin, we have decided to cancel our annual Christmas concert and dinner.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but with the hazardous road conditions forecast for Sunday, we think it’s better if everyone stays off the roads as much as possible.

International Festival 2016

Sorry this has taken me so long to post, but here are some photos form our performance at the International Festival on Saturday January 9th at the Overture Center. We had a good crowd in the Rotunda Room and after the performance we went over to the Come Back Inn for “refreshments.”
