"Maennerchor" (literally translated "men's chorus" in English) is the name given to German social clubs, primarily in the northeastern United States, Pennsylvania in particular. The earliest forms of these clubs where "singing societies" that perpetuated traditional choral music, both German and German American culture, providing "Gemuetlichkeit" for new immigrants. Such clubs are typically attended by men and many function as a restaurant and bar, serving German cultural foods and beers. The Damenchor often serves as the Maennerchor auxiliary for women.
