MONROE — When the Monroe Swiss Singers held their first Swissfest in November of 1963, the 19 charter members at that time probably never dreamed the event would still be going strong over 55 years later with more than double the membership. Although some of the faces in both the mixed choir and the audience have changed over the years, the Monroe Swiss Singers’ annual trademark event remains synonymous with quality Swiss folk music and entertainment, all for the sake of carrying on the traditions and culture brought to Monroe and south central Wisconsin by its Swiss forbears.
