    Renowned vocalist and 10-time Grammy winner Bobby McFerrin performs an improvisational program with Berklee students in the 24-member Singing Tribe Ensemble, conducted by Associate Professor Joey Blake. The concert is the culmination of McFerrin’s weeklong residency at Berklee, his second visit as Africana Studies visiting professor. The program for the evening will be determined through McFerrin’s workshops with the students the week of the concert. Auditions were held last fall to choose the vocalists. While many Berklee student concerts include auditions, the process for this ensemble was particularly exhaustive. Close to 300 students auditioned, and the finalists went through two callbacks and submitted essays about what they hope to gain from the experience. Showcasing the diverse landscape of Berklee students, the members hail from countries all over the world, including Argentina, Bangladesh, Bermuda, Ecuador, Finland, Greece, Holland, Italy, South Korea, Russia, and the U.S.
