In Germany it is a small village indeed that does not have its men’s chorus or mixed chorus. Sängerchor Boston keeps alive this splendid tradition. We are a mixed voice chorus of approximately 25 members. We present both German folk songs and art songs by famous German composers. We rehearse every Tuesday evening, 7:30 to 9:00 PM, September through June at the Boylston Schul-Verein. New singers are welcome at any time: just come to a rehearsal at the Schul-Verein. There are no auditions, and no knowledge of the German language is required.

Each year, we present three dinner/dance/concerts at the Boylston Schul-Verein. At these events we serve German cuisine, home cooked by our members. Then we entertain them with our German songs. Dancing to a live band completes the evening.

In addition to our own events, Sängerchor Boston provides music on festival occasions for other German-American organizations, such as German-American Heritage Day. This event, sponsored by the Associated German Societies of New England (AGSNE), celebrates the arrival of the first Germans in North America.

The highlight of the year is the annual Sängerfest of the Connecticut Sängerbund. In this choral competition Sängerchor Boston joins with other member German-American choruses. In a tradition dating back hundreds of years, judges mark the performance of each chorus. After the serious competition the festival begins, celebrating German food, beer, and song with dancing to live music.
