Bobby McFerrin: Gimme5 (circlesongs)
Bobby McFerrin is a famous American jazz vocalist, conductor, and ten-time Grammy Award winner. He is one of the world’s best-known vocal improvisers: his voice is a musical instrument all on its own. McFerrin’s work combines jazz, pop music, folk, and world music. He has worked with music stars such as Yo-Yo Ma, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Joe Zawinul, Yellowjackets, Tower Of Power and many more.
McFerrin will perform his Gimme5 (Circlesongs) programme. The concert hall will accommodate an improvised choir in which every concertgoer will participate, directed by Bobby McFerrin in an impulsive adventure with jazz, pop, R&B, and classical music. This idea was first implemented on the album Circlesongs 1997, recorded by the Voicestra vocal group. The 12 members of the group included opera, gospel, jazz, pop, and R&B vocalists.
