Take 6 in Concert (-)

March 28, 7:30 p.m., Goodrich Chapel

The members of the renowned Take 6 vocal group.Take 6—the most awarded vocal group in history—brings an iconic a cappella sound to Albion College.

Renowned for its mastery of gospel, jazz, R&B and soul, Take 6 has a worldwide fan base and has performed with such diverse artists as Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, the Manhattan Transfer, Ladysmith Black Mombazo and the Boston Symphony. Along with awards for humanitarian work and two NAACP Image Award nominations, the group also has won, to date, 10 Grammy awards, seven DownBeat Magazine Best Jazz Vocal Group awards, 10 Dove Awards for gospel performance and many more.

Founded by tenor Claude McKnight at Alabama’s Oakwood College in the 1980s, Take 6 celebrated its recent 25th anniversary with a tour that spanned five continents. The group's remarkable music success is enhanced by its artistic stability; four of the six are original members, while the remaining two directly replaced original members.

"We're very excited to have a group of this international fame here in Albion," said Clayton Parr, director of choirs at Albion College. "Their accomplishments in the gospel and R&B fields, and their mastery of complex a cappella vocal-jazz harmony, are the reasons for their lasting popularity. Since they will be giving a workshop as well as a concert, we'll be able to benefit from their expertise."

Take 6's Albion College appearance is underwritten by the David L. Strickler Concert Series, established in 1992 in recognition of Strickler's tenure (1943-76) as conductor of the Albion College Choir. The annual concert brings distinctive choral ensembles to Albion College and the Albion community.

General admission to the Take 6 Strickler concert is $20, but complimentary tickets are available to Albion residents through the Albion Ministerial Association. Ticket sales/reservations begin March 16. Albion residents should contact a local minister or the Albion College Music Department, music@albion.edu, call 517/629-0481, or register online.
