Kansas City, MO – Vocal groups The Manhattan Transfer and Take 6 take the stage as part Kauffman Center Presents series in a double-headliner concert on March 30 in Muriel Kauffman Theatre.

The Manhattan Transfer and Take 6 join forces in The Summit to create one of the most unique and thrilling musical collaborations ever assembled. With 20 GRAMMY Awards between them, these two musically iconic groups have joined forces to perform together.

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.

Tickets are available now and can be purchased at the link above, or through the Kauffman Center Box Office at (816) 994-7222, via the Kauffman Center mobile app, or online at


After celebrating their 45th anniversary in 2017, The Manhattan Transfer continues to set the standard as one of the world’s most innovative vocal groups with their blend of pop, jazz, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, swing and a cappella music. Founded by Tim Hauser in 1972, the current group features Janis Siegel (alto), Alan Paul (tenor), Cheryl Bentyne (soprano), and newcomer Trist Cureless (bass), who replaced Hauser following his passing on October 16, 2014. The group is proud to extend Hauser’s vision more than four decades later. As The Manhattan Transfer endures with their new lineup, they’re returning to the road for a very special collaboration, joining Take 6 on The Summit tour across the United States.

Take 6 showcases six voices united in crystal clear harmony, placed against a backdrop of syncopated rhythms, innovative arrangements, and funky grooves that bubble into an intoxicating brew of gospel, jazz, R&B and pop. Members Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joel Kibble, Dave Thomas, Alvin Chea and Khristian Dentley have been heralded by Quincy Jones as “the baddest vocal cats on the planet.” With praise from such luminaries as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald and Whitney Houston, Take 6 is recognized as the pre-eminent a cappella group in the world. The group credits its success to faith, friendship, respect, and love of music. From their exceptional Christmas Show, to their innovative symphony shows, to their new album Believe, these qualities are at the heart of the Take 6 phenomenon.
