Thinkin About You Bobby- A once in a lifetime opportunity to study with Bobby Mcferrin & produce a concert based on that experience!

  • After the first time I listened to the Beatles, I believed in the transformational power of art to change the world.  Since then I have been searching for someone with not only immense talent, but someone who possesses the ability to inspire, compel & unite an audience.  Someone who, as an artist, connects with people on a universal level.  Three few years ago, I found that person:  

"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent," Victor Hugo.  What's most impressive in this video is his ability to inspire what already exists in the audience, what cannot remain silent; tapping into that musical, or magical, source in every one of us. 

I am thrilled to announce that I recently discovered a way to weave my dreams into reality with one project- "Thinkin' About You Bobby."

The Workshop

The first part involves my participation in a 5 day intensive with Bobby McFerrin (master singer, composer, conductor and creator of "Dont Worry Be Happy).  This study emphasizes creativity, improvisation & interactive singing in order to become more musically acrobatic with both other performers and audience members.

The Concert

The second part is a performance that employs the skills & experiences from the workshop.  The goal is to produce a truly unique concert that seeks to redefine the role of the audience, using them as fellow collaborators in creating music.

In the End

I want to learn how to give other people what Bobby Mcferrin has given me: a belief that, through a common voice, we can do anything. 

In order to do that, I need you: your love, support & help!  THANK YOU!!
