German workers' choirs at various locations in Czech Northern Bohemia joined in a varied musical weekend at the end of June 1931. Songs by Mendelssohn and arias by Mozart were alternated with folk songs and the March of the Red Guards. Every proletarian choir should be mixed, according to the organizing Deutscher Arbeiter Sängerbund: 'Singing in a choir is well-known for its social and educational value in churches, in the Army, and in bourgeois society, and so it should also be in the labour movement. This is an asset to the class struggle, as well as for the emancipation of women.'
