The Plattdutscher Vereen of Cole Camp has sponsored the Sängerfest for the last decade. It is an evening of entertainment with music expressing the German's deep and fervent love of God and homeland. The local Cole Camp talent consists of a children's choir, a ladies choir, a men's choir and a combined mixed choir (Kinderchor, Damenchor, Männerchor and Gemischter Chor). This festival is usually held the last weekend in July on a Saturday evening. In addition to the local talent, there also are performances by individuals from other locations.
The men from the Plattdutscher Vereen have built a "Baum" that is decorated and raised for various events in Cole Camp. One of these events is the Sängerfest where the Maibaum was raised and this activity was filmed. The 2011 raising of this Maibaum can be viewed at this location.
If you are interested in German Music, these pages may be of interest to you. There are German Choirs in Cole Camp that put on a concert in conjuction with German musicians from other areas. There has been a concert each year for the past several years. I have captured the last couple of years of this concert with photographs and have placed them here for your viewing.
Feel free to browse at your leasure and enjoy the photographs and show them to your friends if you like, but if you want to copy them or publish them, I ask that you let me know and provide a reference to this site if they are published anywhere.
If you want to link to any of the pages, please link to this page, as the page addresses of the various photograph pages may change over time. Also, as new pictures are added in future years, a link to them will be added to this page.
