MMC concerts presented at Turner Hall and various locations

Wauktoberfest 2015

We sang at Wauktoberfest on the Endres Manufacturing grounds in Waunakee on Sunday September 20th. As we’ve been doing for the last few years, we sing our first set, then pause for the Dachshund races, and then sing a second set. It was a beautiful day and I think we all had a good time. Strangely though, the Wauktoberfest goat mascot (a.k.a. “Greg’s Nemesis”) was not present.

Here are some photos; as always click on the small image to see the full picture.

Charleston House 2015

On Thursday June 25th we traveled to Beaver Dam to sing at the Charleston House. We’ve sung there a number of times in the past, but this was the first time we sang there outdoors – of course it was also the first time we had been there in the summer. some of the sections were a little shorthanded but we seemed to do ok. Afterward we headed down the street to John’s for some beer and more singing.

Here are some photos from Beaver Dam. As always, click on the small image to see a larger version of the picture.

Saengerfest 2015

The WSB Saengerfest was held at the Schwabenhof in Menomonee Falls on Sunday June 21st. It was a great day to be outside and celebrate our unexpected victory at Kommers.

Kommers 2015

The annual Wisconsin Saengerbezirk Kommers and Saengerfest was held in Milwaukee on June 20th and 21st. The host choir was the Milwaukee DANK Chor.

These are my pictures from Kommers on Saturday June 20, 2015. We sang in the Muellner Building in Hart Park in Wauwatosa. As always, click on the thumbnail image to see the larger photo.

Oh, in case you were wondering, we actually came in first place. So the traveling trophy will be back in our trophy case for the next year.

We performed at Oakwood Village on Thursday March 19, 2015 at the invitation of our friend Dick Layman who used to sing with the Maennerchor and is now retired. The concert began at 7:00 pm and we had a nice crowd in the auditorium. Afterward, we moved upstairs to the dining room and enjoyed snacks and other refreshments, and we sang a song or two as well.
