When you go to an event at the Kennedy Center, make certain to see what is playing at the Millenium Stage. A free performance is offered at 6:00 every night. I saw a wonderful set of Broadway show tune sung by very talented students from Catholic University.

Quotes & Highlights

“The critics in Germany call him Stimmwunder (wonder voice), and it’s not hard to understand why. There is something almost superhuman about the range and technique of … Bobby McFerrin. He sounds, by turns, like a blackbird, a Martian, an operatic soprano, a small child and a be-bop trumpet.” —Newsweek
“The hyperkinetic, super personable, wide-ranging singer, scion of a family of musicians, does more than vocalize, conduct and produce music. He lives it.” —__Los Angeles Times __

Description

The performance is expected to run from approximately 90 minutes to two hours, with no intermission.
