Nordöstlicher Sängerbund

The Nordöstlicher Sängerbund von Amerika (NÖSB), (in English:  the Northeastern Federation of Singing Societies of America), is the umbrella organization for German choruses in the Mid-Atlantic area.  Our member choruses range from Long Island, NY in the North, through Pennsylvania, Delaware, and down to Maryland and Washington, DC in the South.

Our purpose is to promote the cultivation of German songs and music.  We are also dedicated to the preservation of  German customs and sociability among its members, and the German language.  

For these purposes, (as well as just for the joy of it all!), the NÖSB periodically organizes  National Song Festivals (Sängerfests).  A Sängerfest brings together all the choruses that make up the NÖSB.  

In recent years, the NÖSB has held a Song Festival every three years.  The last one would have been in 2021, but of course this was disrupted by the COVID pandemic.
