To The Max Takes Christmas by Storm

To The Max had a busy holiday season!

They had the privilege of singing at the Zilber Hospice Angel Tree Memorial Service. Since Judy was called away to nurse one of her sons back to health, they enlisted the talents of our friend, Christine Krause, to take over as their Lead-For-The-Day. They sang a couple of carols, then hummed "Silent Night" while the chaplains and other Zilber dignitaries read the names of those patients who passed away during the last year. A very moving and beautiful service. Christine enjoyed the quartet experience as well.


Seasons Greetings to Clement Manor

This holiday season Crosstown Harmony Chorus brought the music of the season to communities throughout Wisconsin. We loved sharing our medley of heartwarming music to people who otherwise may not have been able to get out and experience a quality performance like this.

Clement Manor is a faith-based continuing care retirement community located in Greenfield, a suburb of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Their mission is to promote healthy aging of individuals on our campus and in the community, through the values of respect, collaboration, and quality service.

Sleigh Bells were ringing at St. Anthony Parish School

Crosstown Harmony Chorus brought the music, cheer and the holiday spirit to St. Anthony Parish School on Sunday, December 4th as we performed for a group of nearly 200 attendees with disabilities. The crowd really got into the show, singing and clapping along. As a performer, an enthusiastic audience really helps make us better performers and it is such an enjoyable experience. Thank you for inviting us to sing for you!


Caroling at the Burlington Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting

Crosstown Harmony brought lots of Christmas cheer to the Burlington Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, December 2nd.

This year’s parade theme was the  “Christmas Vacation"  and it was an event is full of sweets, happiness, and fantastical floats that glided through the historic downtown. Crosstown harmony got the crowd in the holiday spirit by carolling the streets before the parade to get everyone in a festive mood.


Celebrating the season at the VA Medical Center

This holiday season Crosstown Harmony Chorus is bringing the music of the season to communities throughout Wisconsin. We just love sharing our medley of heartwarming music to people who otherwise may not able to get out and experience a quality performance like a Crosstown performance. We were honored to perform for the veterans and staff members at the VA Medical Center on November 28th who seemed equally delighted with the show. The Milwaukee VA Medical Center offers a variety of health services to meet the needs of our nation's Veterans and we hope to be invited back again soon!


A good old fashioned German Christmas

Crosstown Harmony had a great time performing at the Christkindlmarket Mass on November 20th at Best Place. The Historic Pabst Brewery and Mader’s Restaurant partnered to create an authentic German Christkindlmarket that ran from Thursday, November 17 through Sunday, November 20 in downtown Milwaukee, admission was free.

Food and beverages included a variety of items such as schnitzel, sauerbraten, strudel, bratwursts, potato pancakes, pretzels, soups, roasted nuts, stollen, hot chocolate & Gluhwein (hot spiced wine). Of course, there was an assortment of German beer including Spaten varieties of which our chorus had to try a few ourselves. Crosstown members had a blast at this event and hope you will check it out next year, this is one event you won't want to miss!


Fundraising Success

The success of many artistic endeavors often depends on the generosity of its supporters. We host numerous fundraisers each year to reach our goals. Two such fundraisers include selling Pizzas and Nuts. Saturday Crosstown members came together to assemble these goodies. It was a day filled with music, laughter and fun.
