During the 1800s, German immigrants wanted to preserve their culture in their new country. Many of them formed societies based on common interests, one of which was singing. For over 145 years, the Indianapolis Liederkranz has continued to preserve this part of German culture in the Holy Cross area of Indianapolis. The purpose of the Indianapolis Liederkranz is the cultivation and perpetuation of German culture, primarily through song and music, as well as the cultivation and promotion of other cultural activities for its members and the community at large. All events are open to the public, including our rehearsals. We’d love to meet you! If you are interested in becoming a member of the Indianapolis Liederkranz, sign up today!
