    About the Jubilee Trio:
    The Jubilee Trio combines American Art Songs with African-American Spirituals in order to create programs celebrating the diversity of our national music heritage, and offering hope of a genuine community.

    The Jubilee Trio, with Marion Dry, contralto, Leslie Amper, piano, and Robert Honeysucker, baritone, was founded in 1995. The trio's name was inspired by the Hebrew tradition of the year of Jubilee, when slaves were freed, debts were cancelled, and wrongs were redressed. That Jubilee spirit of freedom and equality, embraced by Christianity, and later adopted by the founding fathers of this country, shapes the mission of the Jubilee Trio.
