Join us at Fisk University for a roaring good time!

The Metro Historical Commission Foundation's annual fundraiser will celebrate one of Nashville's iconic institutions- Fisk University.  Fisk was established in 1865 and named after General Clinton B. Fisk of the Freedman's Bureau.  Most known for their Jubilee Singers, Fisk is the oldest institution of higher learning in Nashville.  

 Join us in historic Jubilee Hall!  Tickets can be purchased online, and this site will be updated as new information develops.

The Metro Historical Commission Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit friends group which assists the MHC in its efforts to identify, protect, study and interpret the rich history of Nashville.

Without the donations and ongoing support from business and community leaders such as yourself, we would not be successful in our endeavors to assist the Metro Historical Commission in its efforts to identify, protect, study, and interpret the rich history of Nashville.

Your sponsorship allows us to use proceeds from the event for so many activities as we preserve Metro Nashville’s history. And it has another purpose. The event will celebrate the rich history of a Nashville treasure, the Fisk University Jubilee Singers, on the occasion of the groups’ 150th anniversary.  We’ll hear music in Jubilee Hall, a National Historic Landmark, in the presence of the portrait Queen Victoria commissioned of the original singers so many years ago.  


 Warmest regards,


Ann Roberts, President
