Geneva Concerts Presents: The Fisk Jubilee Singers

Buy Tickets
Saturday, November 4 at 7:30 PM
Smith Opera House

One of the earliest and most famous Black vocal groups, the Fisk Jubilee Singers® are vocal artists and students at Fisk University in Nashville, Tenn., who perform and travel worldwide. Founded in 1871, the original ensemble introduced the world to the music now known as African American spirituals, and are credited with preserving and performing this unique American musical tradition. They broke racial barriers in the U.S. and abroad in the late 19th century and sang for heads of state around the world while raising money to support and sustain their beloved school. Today, this remarkable ensemble continues to perform globally and is comprised of Fisk University students who are selected annually through an audition process. The Fisk Jubilee Singers® have received numerous awards, including a 2021 GRAMMY® nomination for Best Roots Gospel Album for their recently released album, Celebrating Fisk! (The 150th Anniversary Album). The ensemble has been inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame and the GRAMMY® Hall of Fame. In 2008, the Fisk Jubilee Singers® were also awarded the National Medal of Arts, the nation’s highest artistic honor by President George W. Bush.

Much more information about the Fisk Jubilee Singers is available here, including links to video and audio performances and teaching materials.
