The Fisk Jubilee Singers are vocal artists and students at Fisk University in Nashville, TN. who sing and travel worldwide. The original Jubilee Singers introduced ‘slave songs’ to the world in 1871 and were instrumental in preserving this unique American musical tradition known today as Negro spirituals. They broke racial barriers in the US and abroad in the late 19th century and entertained Kings and Queens in Europe. At the same time, they
raised money in support of their beloved school. The Fisk Jubilee Singers continue the tradition of singing the Negro spiritual around the world. This allows the ensemble to share this rich culture globally while preserving this unique music.

Special thanks to our event sponsor, Hopkinsville Milling, for making it possible to bring this great cultural experience to our theatre.
