Männerchor is the freshmen men’s choir that was formed in 2007 under the direction of Michael Culloton. In the short time since the choir was founded, it has quickly become the standard for quality amongst men’s choirs of all ages all over the region, both in the college circuit and beyond. Männerchor performs during daily chapel services, at local churches, as well as playing an integral part in the much beloved Concordia Christmas Concert.
Where does the name come from? Nestled in the Red River Valley, Fargo-Moorhead has a very German and Norwegian population. Concordia has embraced this rich history featuring German and Norwegian majors as well as utilizing the languages to provide the name for our men's choir – Männerchor. It simply means Men’s Chorus and that’s what it is - a freshmen men’s chorus.
Interested in singing at Concordia? Freshmen men - this is your choir.
- When you get here in the fall simply go to the Hvidsten Hall of Music (the music building) and sign up for a time on Mr. Culloton's door #145.
- Remember the time you signed up for!
- Return to Hvidsten and Mr. Culloton's office for the time you signed up.
- Don’t prepare anything! Just bring yourself and your singing voice.
- Mr. Culloton will warm up with you (do some scales and such) and probably have you sing just a couple lines from a common song like God Bless America – no curve balls here.
- Mr. Culloton will let you know when to come back for call backs.
- Have a great time!
