How unique is Bobby McFerrin? The Chicago Tribune puts it this way: “There are essentially two categories of singers in this world: McFerrin and everyone else.” Maybe so, but the ten-time Grammy winner has always made it clear he wants everyone else to sing along. “Bobby McFerrin’s greatest gift to his audience,” says the Los Angeles Times, “may be changing them from spectators into celebrants and transforming a concert hall into a playground, a village center, a joyous space.” Join us for the special concert marking the end of Hancher’s post-flood journey.

McFerrin will be joined by local musicians Damani Phillips (saxophone), Rich Wagor (bass), Ed East (percussion), and the Senior Choir from Zion Lutheran Church.
