Morehouse Glee Club sings in Plainfield Monday

Atlanta's Morehouse College Glee Club will offer Plainfielders a rare treat Monday evening with a concert at United Presbyterian Church.

Working their way through a 14-concert tour that has taken them from Cleveland to Buffalo to Boston, the group comes to Plainfield fresh from its concert on Sunday at New York's famed First Corinthian Baptist Church.

Founded in 1911, the Morehouse College Glee Club has grown world famous through its performances at Martin Luther King Jr.'s funeral and President Jimmy Carter's inauguration, leading to tours in Africa and the Caribbean, as well as Russia and Poland.

Many may be familiar with the group's sound as it appeared on the soundtrack for the movie School Daze, which was directed by Morehouse alum Spike Lee.

Monday's concert is sponsored by United Presbyterian Church. Tickets are $25 per person and may be purchased at the door. Proceeds will benefit the church's Crawford-Walton Scholarship Fund which provides assistance to students at the undergraduate level.
