Beeethoven Maennerchor

Tell people more about this item. What's it about and what makes it interesting? Give people the info they need to go ahead and take the action. Founded in 1867, the Beethoven Maennerchor has been a leader in San Antonio's German community. Its purpose is to preserve German song, music and language. It is one of the oldest German singing societies in Texas.

Beethoven Damenchor

Beethoven Damenchor was founded on March 22, 1932 as an outgrowth of the activities of San Antonio's venerable pioneer male choir, Beethoven Maennerchor, founded in 1867.

Beethoven Kinderchor

The Beethoven Kinderchor is the children's choir, an adjunct singing group at the Maennerchor. They join in the fun and add to events at the club with their voices, singing traditional German music. The children have sung at the Halle as well as the Dallas Saengerfest, Menger Hotel and an international music festival in Killeen, just to name a few!

Although many in the group do not speak German, they learn to sing in the German language! Practice is held regularly on Tuesday nights from 6:45 to 7:45 at the Beethoven. Children from 4 to 15 who would like to sing in German are welcomed and encouraged to join! There is a nominal yearly fee.
