A jubilee quartet is an a capella singing group that consists of four to six male or female voices. These quartets are traditionally African American because the history behind these musical groups began at Fisk University, a historically black college in Nashville, Tennessee. Students at this University shared a common goal to raise money for their institution and decided to create a musical group that performed formal pieces in four part harmonies.

Jubilee quartets involved musical techniques that incorporated blues, gospel and other musical variations.
