History of the
The roots of the Concordia Choir in
Spokane can be traced to 1883 when a German Männerchor (male choir)
greeted the arrival of the first Northern Pacific Railroad train in Spokane.
Many German immigrants lived in the Inland Northwest at that time, and by the
turn of the century numerous German choirs existed in Spokane.
In 1911 several of these choirs merged into one
organization that has become our current Concordia Choir of Spokane. In 2006 we
celebrated our 95th Anniversary.
Our choir members belong to the German American Society of
Spokane and meet regularly for club functions at the Deutsches Haus on
West 25 Third Avenue. The Concoria Choir is incorporated as a non-profit
organization and its mission is to promote the German culture in song. We are
45 active singers; most are of German origin.
The choir performs several public concerts during the year
at the Deutsches Haus, and organizes a German Christmas service in
December at one of the local churches. The choir also performs by invitation
for other groups and charitable institutions.
As part of the North Pacific Sängerbund, Spokane
hosted song festivals in 1934, 1958, 1969, 1974 (in conjunction with “EXPO 74”)
and most recently in 1993.
