In Jubilo at the Tabernacle
It began with the dream of Jackie Riddle-Jackson and LuWenn Jones to have a women’s chorus in Cedar City. Twelve women who had prepared a Christmas concert for their local stake were joined by several others in February 2002 to perform at a women’s conference. With the expertise of Jackie as the artistic director the group, now officially “In Jubilo” began to grow from there. They now number approximately 60 women who dedicate their time to the chorale every season, with several who have been with the group since it began.
Not only has In Jubilo grown in numbers, but the group has also grown in musical sophistication and artistry. Each member is dedicated and willing to devote time and effort to the betterment of the chorale. In the beginning days concerts were performed in churches and other cozy settings before small audiences. Now, In Jubilo invites much larger audiences to come enjoy their concerts in venues such as Cedar City’s Heritage Center Theater.
The group’s name, In Jubilo, means ‘of joy’ or ‘with joy’, and it is a most apt name, as they bring joy to everyone who hears their music.
The ladies of In Jubilo look forward to performing in the St. George Tabernacle.
