The Houston Saengerbund, founded in 1883, is the oldest musical association in the city. The purpose of the Society is to cultivate the furtherance of song and music, to preserve the German language, to promote the Society's life and to convey good German customs and morals. The Houston Saengerbund has a Maennerchor (men's choir) and Damenchor (women's choir). We welcome all who enjoy singing and celebrating German culture.
Singing practice is held every Tuesday at 7:15pm at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church at 1311 Holman St. Click here for directions...
The Houston Saengerbund held an impromptu concert on April 26. The Fruehlingsfest program included lively music to celebrate spring (Fruehling) in Houston. The Damenchor performed Musik erfuellt die Welt, Das Karwendellied and Lieder, die von Herzen kommen, among others. Some of the Maennerchor songs were Tuerkisches Schenkenlied and Doktor Eisenbart. Both choirs joined for the wonderful song Aus der Jugendzeit by Robert Radecke. Maybe this will be the beginning of a yearly Fruehlings Konzert at the Saengerbund!
