Sherman United Methodist Church to Sponsor Fisk University Choir in Concert, Nov. 19 – Evanston Roundtable

Submitted by Sherman United Methodist Church

The Fisk University Choir will perform Saturday, November 19 at 7:00 p.m. at First United Methodist Church, 516 Church St., in partnership with Sherman United Methodist Church.

Founded in 1922, Sherman United Methodist Church is the only historically African-American United Methodist Church on the North Shore. Additionally, Sherman is the only church in Evanston named after one of its co-founders, an African-American woman, Mrs. Lula B. Sherman. In addition to celebrating its 100th anniversary, Sherman celebrates the return of the Fisk Choir after a two-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Led by music director Dr. Christopher Duke, the Fisk University Choir remains the oldest college choir (1879) in the state of Tennessee. This is the 14th year that Sherman has hosted the Fisk Choir on their annual fall tour. The concert was originally scheduled for Friday October 16 but had to be postponed to Saturday November 19.
