With 20 Grammy Awards between them, two musically iconic groups — The Manhattan Transfer and Take 6 — have joined forces for an unforgettable collaboration. Both ensembles boast a range of styles that cover nearly every genre of popular music from jazz to swing, and gospel to R&B. Having celebrated their 45th anniversary in 2017, The Manhattan Transfer continues to set the standard as one of the world’s greatest and most innovative vocal groups. Winner of ten Grammy Awards, with millions of records sold worldwide, this amazing quartet is building upon the extraordinary legacy created by founder Tim Hauser. The quartet joins Take 6 to share their crystal clear harmony, innovative arrangements, and funky grooves, demonstrating why this sextet is recognized as the pre-eminent a cappella group in the world. Not an ordinary double bill, this show combines unexpected twists and turns to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

“Take 6 and The Manhattan Transfer have combined their talents to create an evening of unforgettable joy, and they do it without forgetting to swing! They must be heard to be believed.” —Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
