About the Fisk University Choir
Originally known as the Mozart Society, the Fisk University Choir was established in 1879 by Adam K. Spence, first principal of the Fisk School. The purpose of the ensemble was to assist the Jubilee Singers during their heavy touring season.
Today, under the leadership of Music Director Dr. Christopher A. Duke, the Fisk University Choir remains the oldest college choir in the state of Tennessee and strives to continue its legacy of fine music. The Fisk University Choir cultivates a diverse repertoire, and its members become acquainted with a wide range of choral music genres including Hymns, Spirituals, Gospel, Classical, and Anthems. © Fisk University
