The group of people that make up the powerhouse choir, Jubilation, are a force in the industry. Established in 1998 through the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), the choir made its debut at the NJPAC’s second-annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration featuring the legendary gospel minister and singer, Shirley Caesar. That performance set the tone for what would become more than a decade of excellence and a dedication to praise and worship.
A native of Newark, New Jersey, Rev. Stef, as she is affectionately called, is the artistic director & founder of the Grammy-Award winning choir, Jubilation. She has built her life and career around music. Upon graduating from Newark’s prestigious performing arts high school, she obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in music performance with a certification in music education from Kean University. Afterwards, she spent nearly 30 years as a vocal education teacher in the Plainfield Public School District.
