Event Details

Bobby McFerrin’s exhilarating vocal vocabulary – call and response, global rhythms, soaring melodies, lush harmonies, funny noises, invented language, silence, prayers, and laughter – reminds us all of how much fun it is to be alive. Bobby will take the stage with trusted members of his ground-breaking a cappella group Voicestra, to perform Circlesongs, choral pieces based on irresistible grooves, spontaneously composed each night and sung with a 12-voice ensemble of local singers – and sometimes by the whole audience

‘I want to bring audiences into the incredible feeling of freedom that I get when I sing,’ says Bobby, ‘I want everyone to leave the theatre and sing in their own kitchens the next morning.’

A cappella singers, beatboxers, and vocalists of all genres claim Bobby McFerrin as an inspiration. The jazz and classical worlds celebrate his innovative technique and spirit. His solo performances and collaborations – with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, pianists Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock, the Vienna and New York Philharmonic Orchestras, and eager volunteers from audiences all over the world – are legendary.
