Connecticut Saengerbund

The Connecticut Saengerbund is an organization made up of German choruses from New England who are keeping the tradition of Saengerchor alive.

About Us

In Germany it is a small village indeed that does not have its men’s chorus or mixed chorus.  The Connecticut Saengerbund member choruses keeps this splendid tradition alive.  We are 10 mixed voice choruses.  Our choruses present both German folk songs and art songs by famous German composers.
The highlight of the year is the annual Saengerfest of the Connecticut Saengerbund.  At this festival member choruses compete in Men's, Women's' and Mixed 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.
