Introduction

Männerchor Liederkranz, formed in 1962 in Edmonton, Canada, is a men's choir dedicated to preservation of German musical culture in our community. We participate in social events in the German Community, in song at the Kaffeeklatch, German Days, and at other German festive occasions. We represent our club to the larger community in Edmonton by singing at hospitals and continuing care homes, Alberta’s Legislature, and at a number of church services during the Christmas season.

What Our Fans Say

Liederkranz Männerchor visits our Church to sing in early December to commence the advent season. Their wonderful sound and seasonal songs puts everyone in the Christmas spirit. We thank Liederkranz for their annual performance and bringing their gift of song to our Church at this special time of year.
— Tj Lewis, Board Member All Saints Lutheran Church
Each year the congregation, with joy, expectantly awaits the performance of Männerchor Liederkranz at the Sunday morning service. Their singing with us has become a seasonal tradition which fosters the Christmas spirit.

Because of the great acoustics, Liederkranz has chosen our Church as the location for their Annual Spring Concert. If you are a fan of German men’s choral singing, I recommend you to take in this concert.
— Pastor Sigmar Reichel - St.John's Lutheran Church
I have attended for the past 6 years, the Advent Concert hosted by Männerchor Liederkranz. For me, the Liederkranz men’s choir performing the traditional Christmas songs is a nostalgic trip back home which tugs at my heart strings. And annually put me into the Christmas spirit.
— Renata Tanguay
Each year, over the Christmas season, Männerchor Liederkranz men’s choir visits our church to sing at a service. Their performance is one of the highlights of our Christmas season. It has become a cherished tradition in our congregation at All Saints Lutheran.

About Us

Männerchor Liederkranz is a German male choir which strives to preserve the rich German cultural heritage through song. We practice every Wednesday from September through to June at 7:30PM at the German Canadian Cultural Association (8310 Roper Rd NW, Edmonton).


Our History

In 1960 a group of men formed a choir in order to preserve the male choral traditions they had known in Germany.

The choir operated in the Club Edelweiß until 1962 when the choir was registered with the Alberta Societies Branch as the German Male Choir 'Liederkranz' of Edmonton. The choir moved to the former Friends of Berlin Club in 1972 and returned to the 'Edelweiß' following the destruction of the Friends of Berlin by fire.

When the German Canadian Cultural Association was formed, the Liederkranz took up residence in their building. The chorus is a member of the Deutscher Sängerbund (a world-wide association of German choirs) and the Prärie Sängerbund (an association of German choirs in western Canada).
