Bobby McFerrin at the Chan Centre

  • When: Sunday, February 17, 2019 at 7:00pm
  • Where: Chan Centre for the Performing Arts (UBC, 6265 Crescent Rd)
  • Tickets: SOLD OUT!

The concert will feature Gimme5 — McFerrin’s newest band comprised of veterans from his a cappella Voicestra group Joey BlakeDave WormRhiannon, 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.

Bobby McFerrin’s latest Circlesongs tour with the vocalists of Gimme5 has centred on an improvised concert format based on McFerrin’s sweeping, soulful vocal language — a wide-open space that welcomes elements from all genres including jazz, pop, R&B, classical, and world music. The style requires an innate sensitivity to surrounding participants and results in a unique and spontaneous sound that is created in the moment. Joined by the Vancouver-based eight-member choral group musica intima, McFerrin and Gimme5 will present an evening of sound that draws in the audience as co-performers.
