The Summit: The Manhattan Transfer Meets Take 6

Concert Series, Ordway Music Theater

The Summit: The Manhattan Transfer Meets Take 6 is one of the most unique and thrilling musical collaborations ever assembled. With twenty GRAMMY® Awards between them, these two musically iconic groups have joined forces to perform together. This is an event!

Unlike other music co-bills or meetings, The Manhattan Transfer and Take 6 were not content to sing a set and simply join each other for a finale. They have created musical moments on-stage, singing and performing nearly a dozen songs together, during this show. You will experience the creativity, excitement, and renowned performances that only two phenomenal groups can bring to one stage, in the moment.

These two groups boast a range of styles that covers nearly every genre of popular music – from jazz to swing, from gospel to R&B. As The Manhattan Transfer mark the 40th Anniversary of their debut recording on Atlantic Records, Janis Siegel, Alan Paul, and Cheryl Bentyne will honor founding member Tim Hauser, all as they continue to tour with their newest member, Trist Curless. The Manhattan Transfer  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. No ordinary double bill, this is a show combining unexpected twists and turns to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
