An accomplished orchestral conductor, innovative composer and advocate for music education, he has collaborated with artists ranging from comedian Billy Crystal to jazz musicians Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock to the Vienna Philharmonic. His CDs include Simple Pleasures, Medicine Music, Paper Music and Beyond Words, among many others.

McFerrin's Montgomery Fellowship is the second in a series on the arts that began with writers Grace Paley and Robert Nichols this winter.  Montgomery Fellow playwright Wendy Wasserstein will be on campus to speak, perform and meet with students during the spring and summer terms.
