This course will focus on the learning and performing of SATB (soprano, alto, tenor, and bass) traditional American Negro spirituals in the style of such groups as the Fisk Jubilee Singers. The emphasis will be on theatrically performing the stories of American Negro spirituals evolving from the African American experience. Song arrangements and compositions will include John W. Work, Moses Hogan, H.T. Burleigh, and other African American composers.
