Description:
The original Jubilee Singers introduced "slave songs" to the world in 1871 and were instrumental in preserving the unique American musical tradition known today as Negro spirituals. They have been performing at their Fisk University home and on international tour ever since, earning a National Medal of Arts in 2008, America's highest honor for artists and patrons of the arts. Under the direction of Dr. Paul T. Kwami, this world-renowned a capella choral ensemble brings its storied heritage and contemporary vitality to TPAC. For its annual offering on the Season for Young People, this year's performance is specifically designed for students in grades five through twelve.
