Performances

Fisk Jubilee Singers

This historic touring a cappella choral ensemble was founded in 1871 by Fisk University professor of music George L. White as a means to earn funds for the fledgling university. Over the next several years, the group held concerts throughout the northern United States, including at the White House at the invitation of President Ulysses S. Grant. They also performed before England's Queen Victoria and sang traditional spirituals on stages across Europe. In 1873, funds generated by the Fisk Jubilee Singers' acclaimed tours led to the construction of the university's first permanent building, the aptly named Jubilee Hall. Over a century later, in 2000, the Singers were inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Under the direction of Fisk alumnus Paul T. Kwami, the eighteen members of the 2006-07 Fisk Jubilee Singers hail from across the country.
