Freebase

  1. Saengerfest

    Saengerfest, also Sängerbund-Fest, Sängerfeste, or Sängerfest, meaning singer festival, is a competition of Sängerbunds, or singer groups, with prizes for the best group or groups. Participants number in the hundreds and thousands, and the fest is usually accompanied by a parade and other celebratory events. The sängerfest is most associated with the Germanic culture, and the music selection is usually that of German composers. Its origins trace back to 19th Century Europe, popularized in part by university students who chose the art form to make political statements. A less politicized version of the tradition was brought to the North American continent by European emigrants in the same century. In the early part of the 20th Century, sängerfest celebrations drew devotees in the tens of thousands, and included some United States Presidents among their audiences. Sängerbunds are still active in communities with Germanic heritage.
