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.
