Was it a concert or a three-hour, high-energy revival meeting? Sometimes the boundaries blurred at the 30th anniversary celebration of the Albert McNeil Jubilee Singers, but one thing remained clear--impressive voices continue to abound in this fine group.

In past concerts, the Pacific Chorale has shown its ability to handle intricate textures, complex rhythms and harmonic styles that stretch the ear. But Saturday night at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, the program afforded few glimpses into the chorus' scope of experience. To celebrate John Alexander's 25 years as their artistic director, the choristers had voted on their favorites from a list of a cappella works presented over the course of his tenure.

Eubie Blake, who lived to 100 and, by his own count, wrote about 3,000 songs, obviously was a man with plenty of jump. The Orange County Black Actors Theatre's "Eubie!," a boogie chant to the "king of ragtime" on South Coast Repertory's Second Stage, has jump, too. Some moments reach higher than others. But the spirit is always willing, even when the flesh isn't.
