The first video comes from a great performance in Munich, on the occasion of the 21st birthday of the Philhomoniker: Ich küsse Ihre Hand Madamme. Always a resounding success, when totally unexpected a spectator is drawn on stage.
This and the next three videos have been made for us by Winfrid Parkinson of Die kleine Filmfabrik. Many thanks!

The second video from the same performance in teh Old Congress Hall in Munich.
On this video we sing the beautiful balad If ever I could leave you from the musical Camelot.

And the third video, also from the same performance in Munich. 
Time for an exhuberant (and exhausting) choreography with this song by the Chords from 1954: Life could be a dream, most likely better known as Sh-Boom.

 

The fourth and last HD video of our performance in Munich is a comical song again, by the German group The Wise Guys: Probier's mal mit 'nem Bass. (Try it for once with a Bass).
Something the other voices of the choir do not advise by the way .

Then three videos made and processed by our choreographer Hanna Samson. (Big smacks for all the work Hanna!).

We start mwith the naughty Veronika der Lenz ist da from the Comedian Harmonists, about everything that starts to grow in spring...

Then our current top hit: Herenleed (Gentlement's anguish). With our own text on Der Speisezettel by Carl Zöllner (and in an arrangement by our choir buddy Benno Jockweg from Homophon Münster), we sing about the ailments that threaten the aging gentleman... Till it all end with 'a beautiful sermon and one slice of cake'.
U bent dus gewaarschuwd.

Another merry song with a lethal end: De zusters (sisters) Karamazov van Drs P, ofwel Tante (Aunt) Constance en tante Mathilde.

More videos from Hanna's website:
- A Message and
- Gertie Green,
two parts from the cycle On his Queerness by New-Zealand composer David Hamilton; Mannenkoorts performed the premičre of this cycle for the northern hemisphere.

During the Gay Games in Cologne in 2010 all participating choirs were recorded for a DVD. From Mannenkoorts  one of the rare real classical songs in our repertoire was published on this DVD: Der Wasserman from Robert Schumann.
The video was shot in the Comedia Theater Köln on Friday 6 August 2010.

Mannenkoorts always tries to sing as best as possible. But sometimes it is time to kick over the traces like in this video of Gérard*, of a voluntarily gig in the foyer of the Comedia Theatre in Cologne during the Gay Games. 
As for singing technique far from good, but wás it fun. And the audience lustily joined in with our greatest Colognian hit Dat Wasser vun Kölle.

*) Gérard, also thanks of course.
