Welcome to Folklore Village!


Madison Maennerchor Choral Concert & German Tree Lighting: December 19th


$7 adults, $5 seniors & teens, $4 kids 

Reservations recommended at 924-4000. 

Founded in 1852, the Madison Maennerchor is the second oldest German singing organization in the United States, and the oldest in Wisconsin. Their mission is to perpetuate German and American choral music, German culture, and Gemuetlichkeit. This is our first concert with this choir and we are excited to host them in our lovely Plum Grove Church for a special winter's night holiday concert. We will also light our 13 ft. pine tree with candles--the traditional German way and sing some carols. Please bring some cookies or treats for this part of the evening. Thank-you.
