Arts Commons Presents: Bobby McFerrin & Gimme5: Circlesongs

Bobby McFerrin: Circlesongs will take you on a life-changing musical adventure. Bobby'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, to lift our voices and communicate with one another, to make a joyful noise.

For this Jack Singer Concert Hall performance, Mr. McFerrin will also be enlisting the vocal talents of Calgary-based youth ensemble CADME Singers who have been personally selected for just for this occasion —and of course, the whole crowd.

In this exhilarating musical escapade, the singer takes the stage with members of his new group Gimme5 to lead Circlesongs, a series of choral pieces based on grooves that are freshly composed each night. Gimme5 features Joey Blake, Dave Worm, Rhiannon and Judi Vinar, all trusted veterans of McFerrin’s choir Voicestra. "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."
