Circlesongs: Bobby McFerrin

Sun. February 17th Chan Shun Concert Hall @ The Chan Centre (All Ages)
7PM - 9PM doors at 6PM
$1-$100 at the door only.
The Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at UBC presents the inimitable, genre-defiant music of Bobby McFerrin on February 17, 2019, at 7pm in the Chan Shun Concert Hall. The concert will feature Gimme5 — McFerrin’s newest band comprised of veterans from his a cappella Voicestra group Joey Blake, Dave Worm, Rhiannon, and Judi Vinar — and local choral ensemble musica intima. The program will be based on Circlesinging, a musical practice and philosophy that McFerrin has been honing since he began as a solo a cappella performer, assigning vocal parts to his onstage collaborators and audience members — transforming sold-out houses into glorious impromptu choirs. In this completely improvised concert, McFerrin will transform listeners from “spectators into celebrants” (Los Angeles Times).
