After seeing Bobby McFerrin last semester during his week-long artist in residency, I fervently counted down the days until February 24th when he’d return to Berklee to perform with a chorus of Berklee students in the BPC.
And Bobby McFerrin did not disappoint!
The crowd gave a warm Boston welcome to McFerrin when he entered the stage and began singing in his signature a cappella style, highlighting his 4 octave range. After a few minutes performing solo, McFerrin was joined by the huge Singing Tribe Ensemble, comprised of 22 students, representing countries from all around the world including Argentina, Ecuador, Finland, Greece, Holland, India, Italy, South Korea, and Russia. The creator of the ensemble, Joey Blake, selected the students for their talent and also their musical diversity to best highlight Berklee’s global student body.
