Join us in the lobby at 7:15pm for an Italian wine tasting by Pera Wines and an art exhibit by Annette Womack!

This ten-time Grammy Award winner is best known for his a cappella hit “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” his collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, Chick Corea and the Vienna Philharmonic, his improvising choir Voicestra, and his legendary solo vocal performances.  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.

Bobby will take the stage with trusted members of the groundbreaking a cappella group Gimme 5. 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 (members of the Ridgefield Chorale, led by Artistic Director Daniela Sikora, will perform at this show) — and sometimes by the whole crowd. “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.”

Art Exhibit: Annette Womack is a painter whose work borders on surrealism, expressionism, and visionary art.  Reoccurring themes include the human psyche, the metaphysical, energy, and connectivity.  See Annette’s work HERE.
