    Dorothy Cotton Jubilee Singers present spirituals Oct. 28

    Sunday Oct 28
    3 pm - 4 pm

    St. Paul's United Methodist Church

    The Dorothy Cotton Jubilee Singers (DCJS) will present an afternoon of Negro Spirituals at 3 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 28 at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 402 N. Aurora St. in Ithaca.

                DCJS has more than 90 members, including some 20 Ithaca College voice students, who perform many of the solos, alongside community members of different ages (11 to 81), heritages and backgrounds.

    The diverse chorus performs locally and throughout the region; the singers have performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., the Clemens Center in Elmira, and in Rochester, Buffalo, Toronto, Harlem and Brooklyn. 

    As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, DCJS’s mission is to preserve the Negro Spiritual and its themes of sorrow, despair, and hope to promote racial healing and social justice. Founding director Dr. Baruch Whitehead, associate professor of music education at Ithaca College, not only conducts this soulful music, but also shows how some songs had hidden meanings or special significance to the enslaved Africans who first sang them.

    The Dorothy Cotton Jubilee Singers sponsors include The Community Arts Partnership, The Kraut Family Fund of the Community Foundation, The Hess Legacy Fund of the Community Foundation and The Tompkins County Tourism Program.

    The concert is free with suggested donations.
