Dallas Frohsinn Singing Society History
The Dallas Frohsinn Singing
Society was first organized in 1877 and little did anyone then
realize that in order still to exist it had to survive two
world wars and experience an almost non-existent emigration
from their home countries Germay, Austria and
Switzerland. Also, times since then have changed
drastically causing an alarming drop in new membership.
During World War II the choir disbanded for a few years and
then started up again once the war was concluded.
Originally the Dallas Frohsinn was a men's chorus but in
1991 a Damenchor was also established and became accepted in
the Deutsch Texanischen Saengerbund. Eventually the
two choirs merged and became a mixed choir.
In concert we now have three venues - the men's chorus and
the women's chorus each singing individually and then the
mixed chorus where we sing the four voices together.
