Bobby McFerrin & Gimme5: Circlesongs
Jack Singer Concert Hall, Arts Commons 205 8 Avenue SE, Calgary, Alberta T2G 0K9
Lobby Pre-show at 6:30pm; Concert starts at 7:30pm 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.
Bobby will take the stage with trusted members of his groundbreaking a cappella group Voicestra. They are all masters of the art of play, and together they will lead Circlesongs, choral pieces based on irresistible grooves, spontaneously composed each night and sung by a 12-voice ensemble of local singers.
“Bobby McFerrin’s greatest gift to his audience may be changing them from spectators into celebrants and transforming a concert hall into a playground, a village center, a joyous space.” – Los Angeles Times
