Capitol Concert: The Gospel Jubilators

March 22, 7-8:30 p.m.

Durham’s Gospel Jubilators will kick off the State Capitol’s spring programming with a special concert on March 22. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. in the historic House Chamber, with a reception to follow. Advance tickets are $15 per person; $20 each the day of the show

This all-male vocal group has performed a cappella music with rare purity and soul, highlighting vocal traditions of the golden age of 1930s and ‘40s gospel. The five-man group (now seven) that came together in Durham more than 40 years ago decided that the focus of their singing would be jubilee; the spirited quartet style that had been popular during their youth.

The group has performed at events as the National Folk Festival, the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, the NC Bicentennial Folklife Festival, MerleFest, and the Omagh International Folk Music Festival in Ireland.

For tickets, call 919-733-4994 or email Diana Mauney, diana.mauney@ncdcr.gov
