Choirs

 

The Maennerchor

Born of humble beginnings, The Männerchor (Men's Chorus) has stood the test of time. Through prosperity and adversity, war and peace, the men have hung together with a unified purpose: To advance the knowledge and understanding of German Culture, Language, and of course, Song. What began as 12 fresh immigrants huddled around 6 candles on a blustery October night in 1948 flourished as an organization where men from all walks of life could come together to raise a glass, and their collective voices, to honor the beautiful songs of the old country... and of the new. From that first Tuesday night, and on every Tuesday night since, the Columbus Männerchor has always striven to live up to their motto: "Harmony - in song and in life - holds us together".

The Damenchor

Founded in 1931 by women who wanted to make their voices heard in Columbus' art scene, the Damenchor (Women's Chorus) has become a premier women's choir in Central Ohio. Much like the men in 1848, many of these ladies were new to this country and wanted to have a piece of home to keep here. Music seemed an obvious choice. The Damenchor is dedicated to keeping German music alive and well in Columbus. The chorus has nearly 50 members and is always looking for more! The Damenchor performs a wide variety of music. In addition to their German repertoire, you will hear folk songs from many other European nations and from America, as well as Masterworks.

 
 

The Kinderchor

The Kinderchor (Children's Chorus) was formed in 1969 by the Männerchor, the Germania and the Swiss Club to assist the growing number of children in our German community in holding on to their heritage. Director Marc Heeg is building up the Kinderchor to have 2 segments, one for younger children and one for pre-teens and teenagers. The Kinderchor provides a safe, fun place for kids to sing, socialize, and learn a new language. Of course the parents are always invited to join us for practice, and who knows, maybe they'll sing along!

The damen sektion

Consisting of Social Members and Spouses of the Männerchor, The Damen Sektion (The Ladie's Auxiliary) was founded in 1903. The purpose of the Damen Sektion is to assist and support the Columbus Maennerchor in its many projects and to promote fellowship among the members.

 

Social Memberships

It's Not Just A Choir

So maybe you aren't a singer. Maybe you are, but just in the shower. Maybe you just want to sit back, relax, and enjoy the Gemütlichkeit. Or you want to help support an art based organization that has been entertaining Columbusites since before Columbus had paved roads.
Our Social Membership may be for you. Social Members have the same rights and priveledges as singing members, including access to our facilities, voting, discounts at Valter's, and much more.
