You could call the choir the heart and soul of the club. under the direction of Anne Crans. Their renditions of old-country songs, some of them poignant, some of them rousing, will move you, and have you humming along! The Edelweiss Choir gives 3 main performances: the Grand Rapids Festival of the Arts (in June), Oktoberfest West Michigan (in September), and a Christmas concert at St. Mary’s. Occasionally they will sing in retirement homes and other festivals.
The choir is always looking for new members, so if you love German music and can carry a tune reasonably well, consider joining! Call Linda at (616)490-1866 or Mary at (616)446-9431 if you are interested.

There are two seasons: The Fall season runs from September till Christmas. The Spring session runs from April till May. During January, February and March, the choir does not meet.
