CHORAL | American Choral Directors Association's Eastern Region Conference

Students, conductors, and aficionados will grapple with issues ranging from copyright law to working with LGBTQIA+ singers in daytime workshops (

On March 4, Bobby McFerrin will bring his distinctively joyful spirit to Kodak Hall for a ticketed public event. He'll start offstage with a prayer circle, according to collaborator Judi Vinar, and then emerge for an evening of unscripted improvisation. The crowd will be invited to sing along. Vinar says, "Bobby says, 'We go onstage empty and we leave full.'" The free March 6 performance of Benjamin Britten's pacifist opus "War Requiem" is a landmark of masterful writing and moral power.

Bobby McFerrin and Gimme5 perform Wednesday, March 4, 7:30 p.m. at Eastman Theatre's Kodak Hall, 26 Gibbs Street. $50.50-$100.50. 274-3000.; CITY Newspaper is a media sponsor for the Bobby McFerrin concert. "War Requiem" will be performed Friday, March 6, 8 p.m. at Kodak Hall. Free; donations go to UNICEF. 274-1000.

A previous version of the article had incorrectly listed the day of the March 6 concert as Saturday.
