Damenchor Germania

The Damenchor Germania was founded in 1932. The Damenchor, an affiliate of the German-American Central Society, participates in all of the fests at Hickory Grove as well as sponsoring a booth at the Oktoberfest on the Peoria Riverfront. The Damenchor, currently 130 members, has performed throughout the country at Saengerfests, locally for churches, nursing homes, and various other cultural functions, along with our annual concert.
The purpose of the Damenchor is to promote German music, heritage, and traditions. We do this by continuing to participate in various civic and social events in the Peoria area, ensuring a German cultural presence in Peoria and surrounding communities.
Business meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. Beginning in February and extending through April, singing practices are held with rehearsals and performances for special events throughout the year.

Damenchor's newly revised cookbook came out this spring. It has some great recipes in it.
Please think of picking up one (or two) for the upcoming gift season.
The books can be purchased at the hall and from the Damenchor merchandise booth for $12.00.

Damenchor Holiday Canned Food Drive
The Damenchor will be having their annual canned food drive beginning November 1st.
Please drop off your canned goods at the Hall.
