American Spiritual Ensemble

The American Spiritual Ensemble is a
critically-acclaimed professional group composed
of some of the finest singers in the classical
music world. The vocalists have thrilled audiences
around the world with their dynamic renditions of
classic spirituals and Broadway numbers.
The mission of the American Spiritual
Ensemble is to preserve and continue
the tradition of storytelling through the
performance and preservation of the American
negro spiritual. Performing these spirituals serves
as a tribute to the many lives lost or destroyed
during slavery in the United States. These
songs, a combination of African, American, and
European traditions, create a new type of melody
in which a sense of identification was created
within the enslaved community. These songs
now stand as a testament of the strength found
through faith during times of hardship as well as a
unifying force among all peoples and are beloved
all around the world.
The American Spiritual Ensemble commits
to aiding in the preservation of these beautiful
melodies through performances worldwide
as well as through education in the form of:
lectures, master classes and vocal instruction
for educational, religious, and community
institutions worldwide.
This is a free, ticketed event. Contact the
Department of Fine Arts at 706.236.2289.
