Dear Bobby McFerrin Fan,
Thanks for your continued interest in Bobby's music. Lots of great stuff going on, so read on!
SING & PLAY
In the "Sing & Play" section of bobbymcferrin.com, check out the two interactive games that allow you to play and combine different parts of songs created by Bobby. The first is the familiar "Don't Worry, Be Happy". The second is a funky little riff called "Just Enough", for which Bobby personifies an eight piece, one-man band! (Note: please wait one or two minutes for each game to load)
THE BOBBY SHOP
New additions include the CD of "The Concert for Europe", featuring Bobby leading the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as our exclusive DVD's "Bravo Profile" and "Try This at Home". We plan to add more DVDs in the near future, including the 1989 concert video "Spontaneous Inventions", his 2003 Montreal Jazz Festival performance, and some European imports. Stay tuned. Have ideas for items to sell? Let us know here.
Last Spring's 5-day masterclass at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY was such a huge success, that Bobby has agreed to offer it again. Last year's session was Omega's highest enrolled event, attracting 165 singers from as far away as California, France, and Australia! The 5-day class will take place June 13-17 2005, again in Rhinebeck, NY (100 miles north of New York City). Together with Voicestra members Joey Blake, Rhiannon, Dave Worm, Roger Treece, and Judi Donaghy, Bobby will lead sessions focusing on singing, improvisation, rhythm, and creativity. No experience necessary, just a willingness to sing and create! For questions regarding the masterclass, send an email here.
To be contacted once registration begins, please call 1-800-944-1001 or fill out this Omega Institute form. We hope to have a similar offering in Europe sometime in the future.
Bobby's touring schedule is packed from now through the end of this coming summer - be sure catch him when he's near you! Some highlights include:
~ A rare North American appearance with VOICESTRA at Philadelphia's Kimmel Center on January 16 '05.
~ Several appearances in the Rocky Mountains states including the University of Colorado Artist Series at Macky Hall on January 27, 2005.
~ European tour with one of Bobby's favorite orchestras, the Munich Radio Philharmonic Feb 26 - March 6 '05. Cities include Baden Baden, Düsseldorf, Munich, and Zürich.
~ Bobby's first ever visit to Mexico City at the Festival de Mexico on April 18-21'05.
You can look up more detailed touring information in the "Travelin'" section of the website.
Thanks again for your interest in Bobby. Keep singin' and best wishes for the holidays!
