Sing-a-thon. Join the fun!

Spring is in the air once more as the Milwaukee Children's Choir thaws frozen hearts with our annual Sing-a-thon. Now in its ninth year, the all-day event will take place Saturday, April 13 at Southridge Mall in Greendale, located just north of Macy’s on the lower level of the mall.


The Sing-a-thon is a free, Springthemed community concert and fundraiser that features all of MCC's performing choirs and a number of soloists. This heart-warming 5 ½ hour musical marathon will entertain the come-and-go crowd with choir performances and singing ‘blossoms’. Choristers can raise pledges as well as giving audience members an opportunity to purchase singing ‘blossoms’ on the spot. Performances will begin at 10 a.m. and will run until 3:45 pm.  All are welcome to attend!

Between the Lines: A Message from the EAD

I grew up in a dually aligned family committed to both choral music and sports. It was essential that the everyone in Swanson family do both. I began piano lessons at the age of 8 which was the earliest any teacher would take a student in those days. At the same time I began baseball practice with my older brother.
