We’ve put together a short video. The soundtrack is our rendition of “Ein Prosit” from our Heimat CD that we recorded a few years back, and there are some photos from some of our activities in the last few years.
The video has been uploaded to YouTube. If you’re interested, please click here!
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!
Danny Proud, one of our Tenors, assembled original songs about GI’s, humor, love and yearning from the US Army barracks of the 421st Medical Company (Air Ambulance) at Nellingen Kaserne, during the Vietnam War.
All of the proceeds from the sale of the CDs will go to Guitars4Vets, a non-profit organization providing music therapy for disabled veterans.
Madison Männerchor was invited to participate in the Holy Hill Centennial celebration! On July 15th, 2006, MMC sang several songs, including Beethoven’s “Die Himmel rühmen,” Mozart’s “Bundeslied,” and Franz Schubert’s “Heilig,” the Sanctus from the G major mass. We were able to see, once again, how magnificent the basilica is!
Built at the highest point in that part of Wisconsin, the basilica offers a truly commanding view of the area. And the church acoustics! Wow. This building is truly a suitable praise to the Almighty.
This is one of our favorite upbeat songs. We performed this at the 2009 Kommers in Kenosha. Here is the text of the song and some information about it. Much of the information has been gleaned from the Wikipedia sources.
