    Avery Research Center Closed Friday, April 19, 2013

    The Avery Research Center will be closed on Friday, April 19, 2013 in preparation for our Fisk Jubilee Concert and Reception. It will be a wonderfully glorious program that uplifts and preserves the legacy of “Negro Spirituals.”

    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.

    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
