To the King Male Chorus

To the King Male Chorus had its inception in the home of Gerzinus and Jeannetta Hoekstra.  Friends would come together for singing and fellowship and in 1972 the decision was made to form a men's choir as well as a mixed chorus. Then known as "Collegium Musicum", they performed their first concert that year and have been singing a challenging selection of music from Gregorian Chant, spirituals, anthems and religious works to folksongs and operettas.  In 2011 Gerzinus handed the director's baton over to his son Mendelt and Jeannetta retired from her position as accompanist. One of the original members from 1972 is still a member; he has been singing for 40 years, first under the leadership of Gerzinus, now beside him. Kees said that he learned a lot from Gerzinus, but that he enjoys singing under the capable leadership of Mendelt.  The choir is accompanied by pianist Julie Hoff.

The choir is planning a European tour in 2015 to participate in the festivities celebrating the 70th Anniversary of V-Day.
