In concert at the
Clifton Unitarian Universalist Church
2231 Payne Street, Louisville, KY 40206
Saturday, September 29, 2012 – 7:30 p.m.
The New Jubilee Bahá’í Gospel Choir, currently based in Nashville, is a musical community project engaged in discovering ways to come together for service to humanity, worship through song and teach the Bahá’í Faith throughout the American South. The name of the choir hearkens back to the spirit of jubilee, a time specified in the Book of Leviticus when all debts are cancelled and all the enslaved are set free. It also honors the Fisk Jubilee Singers, who faced enormous obstacles while traveling the U.S. and abroad in the 1870’s, challenging the prevailing notions about people of African descent and elevating the Negro Spiritual to a high art in the minds of listeners everywhere. The NJBGC seeks to uplift the spirit and encourage the collective worship of God.
Eric Dozier, former musical director of the World Famous Harlem Gospel Choir, is Co‐Founder and National Director of Arts and Education for One Human Family Music Workshops, Inc., an organization devoted to eradicating discrimination by ‘Uniting the World…One Song at a Time.’ Through his insightful lyrics, soulful melodies, and interactive workshops, Eric dedicates his musical, spiritual, and intellectual talents to welding the hearts and minds of a divided humanity into one loving fellowship.
