Claus Heide is Beethoven' Maennerchor's president. He's responsible for the success of the club, and is the club's public representative among many other organizations that count on Beethoven for annual events and celebrations. One of them includes the complex Fiesta organization that puts on the city's "party with a purpose" every year.
Recently, Beethoven Maennerchor celebrated a milestone of its own -- the club's 150th anniversary. Claus handled many responsibilities to get ready for such a grand affair at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.
The Beethoven Board of Directors is comprised of nine singers and four non-singers who direct policies and procedures at the club.
