The Mannerchor Penzlin 1907 E.V. will be performing for free at Marycrest Senior Campus's Upham Theater, located at 1607 W12th St in Davenport, on Monday April 16th at 7pm. The Mannerchor Penzlin 1907 E.V. is a men's choir from Northern Germany. Founded in 1907, the choir has existed for over 100 years, was active during the GDR and continued and extended its work after the unification of Germany. The choir has a diverse repertoire reaching from classical to modern arrangements, but its central aim is the preservation of German folk and Shanty (sailor songs). This April, 30 members of the choir will perform its multifarious repertoire throughout the Midwest. Christian Bomeier is the conductor. This event is sponsored by the Riverboat Development Authority and the Quad City German-American Clubs.
