Fisk Jubilee Singers
Paul T Kwami musical director
This isn’t the Fisk Jubilee Singers’ Birmingham debut – but given that they last appeared at Town Hall in March 1874, this is an overdue and very welcome return.
Originally founded in Nashville, Tennessee, by George L White, Treasurer of the Fisk School, the Fisk Jubilee Singers are the heirs to two centuries of African-American Spiritual tradition, performing with a beauty and a power that has moved audiences on three continents.
