Fisk Jubilee Singers Performed in Sandusky

On February 13, 1901, the Fisk Jubilee Singers appeared at the Congregational Church in Sandusky. Members of the congregation hosted the singers at their homes. Mr. and Mrs. John Work were the guests of Dr. and Mrs. Steiner; Miss Napier and Miss Hayes were the guests of Mrs.  P. R. Muenscher; Miss Nettie Crump and Miss Grant were the guests of Mrs. Thomas Pate; Mr. Walker Rider and Mr. Giddens were the guests of Judge Merrill; and Mrs. Spence, the group’s chaperone, was the guest of Mrs. Huntington.

Sandusky businessman James M. French was host to Mr. Fred J. Work.

The Fisk Jubilee Singers, vocal students at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee, have been traveling and singing worldwide since 1871. A photograph of the Fisk Jubilee Singers in Sandusky is displayed on the website of the Special Collections of the Fisk UniversityLibrary.
