100 Black Men Brings Morehouse College Glee Club to Syracuse


(Syracuse, NY) – 100 Black Men of Syracuse Inc. will present an evening with the renowned Morehouse College Glee Club at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 13, 2019 at Bethany Baptist Church, 149 Beattie St. Support for the Atlanta-based glee club’s rare Central New York performance is provided by Syracuse University, CNY Arts and the Rotary Club of Syracuse.

Founded in 1911, the Morehouse College Glee Club has a long tradition of significant public appearances, having performed at Martin Luther King Jr.’s funeral, President Jimmy Carter’s inauguration, Super Bowl XXVIII, and the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Almost from the beginning, the Glee Club members have been the school’s official performing ambassadors. The glee club has earned an international reputation through its annual tours and has traveled through Europe, Africa and the Caribbean.

Known for its focused stage presence, musical precision, wide-ranging repertoire and distinguished alumni, the club’s recording of “I’m Building Me a Home” was used by Morehouse alumnus Spike Lee for the opening credits of his 1988 film “School Daze.”
