Bobby McFerrin Headlines This Year’s Collins Gala

Bobby McFerrin, 10-time Grammy Award winner perhaps best known for the a capella hit, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” will return to the stage of the Collins Center for the Arts on September, 28th.

McFerrin has made a career of blurring the lines between pop music and fine art, inspiring a generation of musicians to sing a capella and beatbox. McFerrin previously performed at the Collins Center in 1987 as part of the venue’s second season. The arts center was called the Maine Center for the Arts at the time. 

The Collins Center for the Arts’ full schedule for the year also includes rock ‘n roll legend Chubby Checker and the Wildcats, comedian Bob Marley, “The Office! A Musical Parody,” “A Christmas Carol,” and “The Color Purple.”
