Bobby McFerrin is not so much a musician as he is an instrument of music itself, a pure distillation of sound into joy whose performances blur the lines between performer and audience, fusing the two in a joyous communion. He opens PUC’s 125th season in that same spirit of community with his remarkable Circlesongs, a unique musical language that grows out of tribal chant and sacred music, moving across styles and time periods and resulting in something that is as ancient as it is urgently relevant. McFerrin will improvise an evening of shared sound with some help from the Princeton University Glee Club, and together they’ll lead the audience in a call and response, following a pulsing pathway toward the freedom we feel when raising our voices together in harmony.
