Pommersche Tanzdeel Freistadt
Pommersche Tanzdeel Freistadt Inc. was organized in 1977 to preserve the folk culture of their forefathers by performing songs and dances from the Pomeranian regions of northern Germany. We practice on Tuesday nights at the Lindenwood Community Center, 12351 N. Granville Road, Mequon, WI.
Our club was founded in 1945 with just 17 members. We continued to grow in numbers, especially in the 50-60s with the increased influx of Donauschwaben immigrants from Europe. Today we have around 200 members, and host and participate in events in the German and Milwaukee communities year-round.
The success and future of the UDoM is dependent on the willingness and dedication to the preservation of our Donauschwaben culture, traditions, and past. If you come to any of our events, it is easy to see how the next generation of Donauschwaben – those born and raised in the USA – are proud to carry on the traditions of our forefathers.
Our club’s home is The Schwabenhof on Silver Spring Drive in Menomonee Falls. This is where we host all of our events.
Milwaukee Liederkranz Chorus
Founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on January 21, 1878, the aspiration and function of the Milwaukee Liederkranz is the cultivation of music and song.
At the same time it provides an environment where German language is spoken and kept alive and where Gemütlichkeit at its best is practiced.
One hundred and forty-four years ago a few men founded our singing society whose purpose was to preserve and perpetuate, in song, the culture and heritage of the Old Homeland in this Great Country of ours. While the singers live up to the purpose of the founders of their society, they cannot help but enrich their American Culture as well.
Besides an annual Spring Concert the thirty-six member Liederkranz Chorus performs various concerts during the year for festivals, senior centers, weddings, as well as performances at special civic events, such as the Christmas tree lighting in Brookfield, Christmas Concert with the Brookfield Civic Chorus at the Sharon Lynn Wilson Performing Arts Center, the Milwaukee Public Museum, the Lions Club national convention, the Mitchell Park Domes.
On June 21, 1960, DANK Milwaukee was chartered. It came from a desire to have an organization in the Greater Milwaukee area that would represent the German American heritage in the United States. DANK Milwaukee is the third chapter to be chartered in the DANK National organization and the first chapter in Wisconsin. The National DANK organization is headquartered in Chicago and there are several DANK chapters throughout the country.
DANK Milwaukee supports and promotes the DANK Folk Dancers and the DANK Chor. The dance group was established in 1972 and the chor in 1983. Both groups are active and perform at German Fest and other German celebrations each year. The Chor is a member of the Wisconsin Sängerbezirk and the Nordamerikanischer Sängerbund.
DANK Milwaukee is a vibrant and active chapter. We gather our members together with special parties, picnics, and events. We sponsor a spring dance (Frühlingsfest) and booths at Milwaukee German Fest. We promote teaching of the German language and culture through support of German language and education programs in Wisconsin. Our dancers and singers maintain German traditions in their performances. We participate at events with other German clubs. We are most proud of our members and how engaged they are with the greater Milwaukee German community.
Deutsche Schule – German School Milwaukee
We were founded in 1932. The mission of the Deutsche-Amerikanische Kulturvereinigung, founded in 1932, is based on goals taken from our Articles of Incorporation:
Goethe House Wisconsin
Goethe Haus Milwaukee was registered with the state of Wisconsin on March 10, 1958. The founding committee included: Dr. J. Martin Klotsche, UW-Milwaukee; Richard Krug, Milwaukee Public Library; Edward O’Donnell, Marquette University; Henry Reuss, U.S. Congressman; Dr. Eric Waldmann, Marquette University; and Frank Zeidler, Milwaukee Mayor.
From 1960 to 1990, Goethe Haus Milwaukee was housed in the Milwaukee Public Library. From this location, the organization offered German classes, lectures on German architecture, art, and history and provided a lending library. The Goethe Haus Library was one of the best German libraries in the Middle West with more than 7,500 books, magazines and newspapers from Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt, Berlin, and Vienna available within 24 hours after publication. It housed a reading room, a music room, and an exhibit room.
Goethe Haus was founded as a German-American cultural institute in the Milwaukee Public Library. It’s purpose: to acquaint Americans with significant trends in the cultural life of Germany of the past and primarily the Germany of today.
Today Goethe House Wisconsin continues to serve the German-American community by offering professional German language classes, providing seminars for local German teachers, hosting lectures about various German topics, showing German films, and partnering with local organizations on a number of exciting cultural events
Founded in 1928 by a group of Austrian immigrants who were turned away from the Wendlestoana for not being of German descent. We perpetuate the Bavarian culture through music, song and dance. Our tracht represents the Miesbach tracht and the tracht is very indicative to the hunter in the Bavarian Alps. We practice twice a month on Friday nights, normally on the 1st and 3rd Fridays, with our monthly business meeting preceeding our practice on the 3rd Friday of the month.
