The German-American Club, Gesangverein, Inc. (GAC) perpetuates German culture and sociability, promotes the art of music through group singing of German songs, and preserves the German heritage in Louisville.

The club was founded in 1878 by Louis Vormbrock at Beck’s Hall on Jefferson Street. The fifteen men who met there called themselves the Sozialer Männerchor. They hired Otto Schuler as their first music director and gave their first concert in the gardens of Beck’s Hall in June 1879.

In 1884 a Constitution was established, and a society flag was designed. Professor Gustav Clausnitzer became music director, a position he held for over two decades. In 1914 the Club hosted the national festival of the North American Singers Union, the largest collection of singers ever to visit Louisville.

In 1937 the Ladies Auxiliary was established. The Club moved its first permanent home on Jackson Street in 1942 and changed its name to the Social Male Chorus. In 1964 Urban Renewal forced the Club to relocate to 1840 Lincoln Avenue. In 1992 women were allowed to join as full members and the club was renamed German-American Club Gesangverein, Inc.
