In McFerrin's concert appearances, he combines serious conducting of classical pieces with his own unique vocal improvisations, often with participation from the audience and the orchestra. For example, the concerts often end with McFerrin conducting the orchestra in an a cappella rendition of the " William Tell Overture ," in which the orchestra members sing their musical parts in McFerrin's vocal style instead of playing their parts on their instruments.
For a few years in the late s, he toured a concert version of Porgy and Bess , partly in honor of his father, who sang the role for Sidney Poitier in the film version , and partly "to preserve the score's jazziness" in the face of "largely white orchestras" who tend not "to play around the bar lines, to stretch and bend".
McFerrin says that because of his father's work in the movie, "This music has been in my body for 40 years, probably longer than any other music. McFerrin also participates in various music education programs and makes volunteer appearances as a guest music teacher and lecturer at public schools throughout the U.
McFerrin has collaborated with his son, Taylor, on various musical ventures. Later that year, the two appeared together on a panel at the World Science Festival. As a vocalist, McFerrin often switches rapidly between modal and falsetto registers to create polyphonic effects, performing both the main melody and the accompanying parts of songs. He makes use of percussive effects created both with his mouth and by tapping on his chest.
McFerrin is also capable of multiphonic singing. A document of McFerrin's approach to singing is his album The Voice , the first solo vocal jazz album recorded with no accompaniment or overdubbing.
