Fordham United Methodist Church is a multi-ethnic parish that has been part of the Bronx for generations. At Fordham, our music ministry is a priority. Our soloists have performed at many of the major music venues in New York City and internationally including City Opera, the Metropolitan Opera and Merkin Concert Hall. From Sunday to Sunday, Fordham consistently presents a range of music for worship, from spirituals to classical works. For the past 10 years, our music worship has culminated in a Christmas performance of Handel's "Messiah" with Fordham's Choir, Soloist, Harpsichord, Organ and the Ensemble Sepia Orchestra under the leadership of our Director of Music, Dr. John Carlton Banks.
