Bobby McFerrin won’t cross musician’s picket line

Bobby’s statement:

March 3, 2011 performance at Orchestra Hall will be rescheduled at a later date tbd

“It’s so sad that I must postpone my show at Orchestra Hall in Detroit. I was hoping a settlement between the musicians of the Symphony and their management would have been achieved by now. In Detroit and all over the world, people are hurting in this economy, and things are no different in the arts. We’re all struggling to find new ways to make everything work. We all need beauty and inspiration to enrich our lives, and it’s really important that we figure out how to make it happen. It matters. My heart goes out to all the good people affected by the musicians’ strike — above all, the audiences. Detroit is such a great music city. I pray this will be resolved soon, so I can come back to Detroit and we can all sing together.”
