Since their formation in 1871, the Fisk Jubilee Singers have been recognized internationally as a primary performance source for the authentic singing of spirituals.  The group has sung literally worldwide for well over a century, amazing audiences that have included hometown audiences and heads of state alike.  The group is universally recognized for its preservation of the legacy and performance of a deep tradition of spiritual singing.  Under the direction of Dr. Paul Kwami, the Fisk Jubilee Singers continue this tradition of preservation; after three days of intensive rehearsals with both the Colquitt and Tift County High School A Cappella Choirs and the ABAC Chamber Singers, the evening’s performance will be a joint concert by the three groups of some of the world’s most stirring and singularly American music.

This performance is funded, in part, by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Georgia Council for the Arts.

BONUS (Free admission to these lectures):
Dr. Toni Anderson, lecturer, "The Story of the Fisk Jubilee Singers"

The lecture will include a brief overview of the abolition movement, the formation of the American Missionary Association, the founding of Fisk University, the birth of the Jubilee Singers, and the ensemble's struggles, triumphs, and significant contribution to the advancement of civil rights.  Anderson, acclaimed for many published writing, is the winner of the 47th Georgia Author of the Year Award for her book Tell Them We Are Singing for Jesus: The Original Fisk Jubilee Singers and Christian Reconstruction, 1871-1878, a social history of the choral ensemble, published by Mercer University Press.
