Morehouse Glee Club returning to Anderson

Choir director, pastor's friendship brings popular performers back

(Continued)

“So far she’s made good on that promise,” Morrow said. “… It is always clear in her congregation that they’re very friendly and they treat us well. It’s always wonderful.”

First United Methodist Church has been no exception. The glee club performed there two years ago, and White said people often ask her when the performers are going to return.

“It’s an amazing experience (and) something everyone appreciates,” she said. “People were still talking about it two years later. That’s another reason we brought them back.”

The group’s tour schedule makes it easy for them to stop in Indiana every couple of years.

White said bringing the glee club’s messages, positive image and overall talent to Anderson is somewhat of a thank-you and a gift to the community.

People won’t be disappointed by the group’s talent, Morrow said, and there is a reason the Morehouse choir has been successful for more than a century.

“We’re going on 103 years now,” he said, “this group of students sing as a labor of love.”

The concert will begin at 7 p.m. at First United Methodist Church, 1215 Jackson St. There is no admission, although a freewill offering is appreciated.
