Rev. Karl R. Weiterhausen. Later, the Liederkranz became the Freier Männerchor and then the Teutonia Männerchor. The name Teutonia stems from the one of the oldest German Tribes.
The first meetings were held in the basement of an old Lutheran Church on Canal Street, Later, around 1882 the chorus practiced in Dahlingers Hall at 121 Madison Avenue. The Chorus then moved to the old Masonic Hall in Old Allegheny.
