Fisk Jubilee Singers 2018 - 2019

The Harry T. Burleigh Society and the Fisk Jubilee Singers join in a historic performance celebrating leaders of the concert spiritual tradition. Performing spirituals inspired by original Fisk Jubilee Singer, composer Ella Sheppard, and spirituals arranged by Harry T. Burleigh, the Fisk Jubilee Singers will sound the music of these underheard cultural leaders, and make calls for freedom.

"Through all these songs there breaths a hope, a faith in the ultimate justice and brotherhood of man. The cadences of sorrow invariably turn to joy, and the message is ever manifest that eventually deliverance from all that hinders and oppresses the soul will come, and man - every man - will be free.” Harry T. Burleigh, New York, 1917
