Children Singing in a Choir

Beethoven Kinderchor

Meet every Tuesday from 6:45 to 7:45pm

The Beethoven Kinderchor is the children's choir, an adjunct singing group at the Männerchor. They join in the fun and add to events at the club with their voices, singing traditional German music.

Although many in the group do not speak German, they learn to sing in the German language! Children from 4 to 15 who would like to sing in German are welcomed and encouraged to join!
