Bobby McFerrin

Concert: Tuesday, April 15, 2014 - 7:30 p.m.

Vocal sensation Bobby McFerrin re-imagines Americana with beloved spirituals and original songs, raising the roof with joyful grooves and continuing his lifelong quest to integrate the influences of the musical universe. Spirityouall honors the legacy of Bobby’s father, the great operatic baritone Robert McFerrin Sr., the first African-American to sign a contract with the Metropolitan Opera Company and a renowned interpreter of the American Negro Spiritual. The spirituals are about liberation and courage, the human condition, the search for strength in the face of adversity and the journey toward a better place, and Bobby’s versions reach for new territory.
