An Evening at the Concert Chamber

Last nights live televised performance of JUBILATION with Hollie Smith for Don McGlashan’s winning song BATHE IN THE RIVER comes hot on the heels of another upcoming live televised performance at The TUI Awards (c4 Thursday19th & TV3 Sat 21st) and sellout winter season of concerts Auckland-wide.

Based on these recent accomplishments the star studded Auckland a cappella choir JUBILATION is back to perform for one night only at THE CONCERT CHAMBER, Auckland Town Hall on the 4th of November.

“We are overwhelmed at the public response to our work and have decided to give a larger venue a crack” says choir founder and soloist Rick Bryant. Along with Bryant this eclectic 30 piece choir features some of NZ’s most renowned professional musicians and actors whose only common religion is great music. The line-up includes Jackie Clark, Jean McAllister, Fiona Samuel, Jennifer Ward-Lealand & Amanda Billing; who come together to celebrate the most soulful music, the world has ever created.



Following the success of their winter programme that resulted in turning over 100 audience members away from their capacity gig in Devonport last month, JUBILATION; the choir world famous in Aotearoa for powerful gospel beats and soulful rhythms, returns for a larger public audience in Auckland City for the lead up to the Christmas Season.

Formed over five years ago, JUBILATION has steadily increased its membership to a pool of 30 outstanding vocalists with a repertoire that ranges from traditional Afro-American gospel to Ben Harper, Al Green and Cissy Houston, Curtis Mayfield, Van Morrison and Tom Waits- as well as having the luxury of an in-house song-writing and arranging team. Originally reliant on a city underground following, in the last 18 months the choir has caught the attention of the NZ public with high profile performances at WOMAD, The Tauranga and Taupo Arts Festival and on the big screen in feature film No. 2 as backing vocalists for Hollie Smith’s “Bathe In The River”. The choir is currently in production of their first CD, which is planned for release early 2007.

JUBILATION continue to increase their repertoire and performance schedule to deliver NZ audiences the phenomenal live experience of a big choir gospel sound guaranteed to heat the soul and shake warm the heart just in time for Christmas.
