Sängerchor NewarkThe Sänger-Chor men's chorus was founded in October 1925 by a group of ten men motivated to preserve the old tradition of song and music they enjoyed so much in the ""Old Country"". Their efforts led to immediate success and by 1950 the chorus had over 100 active members on stage.
Over its 77 years of existence the chorus achieved acclaim and wide recognition both in concert performances and prize singing. The chorus' repertoire consists of German and American folk songs, traditional and light classics, and a sprinkling of barbershop style. Although the chorus started out initially with immigrant members, today's membership is a mix of immigrants and native born members. The chorus consists of residents mainly from Union County and surrounding communities with some members coming from distant places such as Ocean and Warren counties.
Today, the chorus participates in many cultural events throughout the year, including the Songest (see Homepage for more information).
The Sänger-Chor is proud to announce the newly organized Ladies Auxiliary. Their mission is to support the chorus in their many cultural and social events throughout the calendar year.
The chorus rehearses every Friday evening at 8:00 p.m. at the Deutscher Club of Clark. New members are welcome.
