Bobby McFerrin: VOCAbuLaries

Monday, September 10, 2012 - 6:00pm

McFerrin fills the stage at the Rose Theater with his composition for a rhythmically charged, internationally cast, 48-voice choir. This sprawling work evokes African chants, gospel energy, Motown soul, minimalism and jazz polyphony. The exhilarating performance also features a role for the Rose Theater audience. Wendell Pierce hosts.

Thinkin' Big

Thinkin' Big is an 18 piece big band formed back in October of 2010 by Jonah Francese. Its goal has always been to play original student charts. They have already gigged all around the Boston area in places like the Lily Pad, Kendall Square, the Western Front, the Atlantic Wharf, and many shows at Berklee. The one thing which makes them special, is that it is more than just a "rehearsal and occasional gig" band. It is family. Every week they rehearse and it's something everyone looks forward to.

"Kombucha" - a lightly-sparkling beverage made by adding live culture to tea.

a tightly-sparkling sound made by adding:

bert seager ­– piano

sean farias – bass

austin mcmahon – drums

original trio music – conversant – spacious – propulsive

Together they continuously strive for transparency in their performances, framing each song’s improvised narrative in a playful three- way conversation. Their use of world-rhythms, rich modern harmonies and melodic song-based forms creates music that is at once recognizable and yet wholly new.
