商品説明

The Albert McNeil Jubilee Singers, a traveling company of 12 to 15, a resident group of 29, have garnered international acclaim and focused worldwide attention on the vast body of folk music termed 'African-American.' Over 40 years ago (1968) the Singers undertook their first European tour. Today, after 18 sold-out European tours, 12 tours of the United States and Canada, tours of the Middle and Far East, Africa and South America, they are among the most honored singing ensembles in the world. They were selected three times to serve the U.S. State Department and USIS Cultural Exchange Program in areas of the world, known in those days as 'behind the Iron Curtain,' including East Germany, Hungary, Romania, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Iran, India, North and West Africa, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates. Founder-Director Albert McNeil is well-known to the national choral community, having been honored on four occasions with 'Command Performances' before the prestigious American Choral Directors Association in 1981 in New Orleans, in 1985 at their Salt Lake City Convention, at their 1997 convention in San Diego, California, in February, 2000, at Los Angeles during the ACDA Western Division Convention held on the campus of Loyola-Marymount University. The Singers were headliners at the First Choral Festival in Jaffe (yafo), Israel, in April, 1988. In 1989, on Martin Luther King Sunday, they performed with the world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir on the program aired by CBS Radio and Television. They have had collaborative concerts with the Los Angeles Master Chorale, the Dale Warland Singers, Chanticleer, the Vancouver Chamber Choir, and Pro Musica of El Paso. In the summer of 1992, The Singers made their first Far East Tour of Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan. That season they went on to Spain to complete concerts at the XXIII Semana de Musica de Camara in Segovia, in the Real Coliseo Carlos III in El Escorial, performing not only their regular fare of Spirituals, but the Siglo de Oro Espanol (Renaissance music of Victoria and Morales). The Singers completed a six-week tour of Europe during the Winter of 1993 and culminated their Winter Concert Season with a performance in the Auditorium of the Ambassador College, Pasadena. Fall, 1993, found the Singers performing in the midwestern U.S. and Toronto, Canada. The Winter Tour, 1994, took them to their first presentation in San Juan, Puerto Rico, their first in the Caribbean. The choir was heard via National Public Radio on the series 'Beverly Sills Presents', a live two-hour broadcast of their concert in the Ambassador Auditorium, and shortly after on The Smithsonian's twenty-six-week series 'Wade in the Water.' During it's 1995 Winter Tour of the east coast, the Singers made their debut at The Kennedy Center, January 26, 1995, and continued on to complete an eight-week tour of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, and France, stopping to perform in Paris' historic Eglise Saint Germain Des Pres, Munich's Herkulessaal, Monte Carlo's Concert Hall, and Bremen's St. Petri Dom (before 2,000 cheering enthusiasts). The Singers completed tours of the U.S., Italy and Spain in the Winter and Spring of 1996. In August, 1996, they were featured in The International Choral Festival in Taipei, Taiwan . The Singers are so popular in Japan that they appeared there successively in 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999, and returned in the Fall of 2002. Early in 1998, the Singers performed in concert version excerpts from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess with the Honolulu Symphony, returning to Honolulu after an exciting tour of the Big Island of Hawaii, and Kauai, to a sold-out audience in the recently renovated Hawaii Theatre. During their winter tour, they were invited to record a program for the award-winning radio program 'Saint Paul Sunday Morning' aired via National Public Raldio and heard in virtually every state in the country. The program generated hundreds of letters from across the country and Canada. The Men of the Jubilee Singers appeared on New Year's Eve, 1998, before a worldwide TV aud
