With 10 voices and 20 Grammy Awards between them, the Manhattan Transfer and male gospel ensemble Take 6 come together for a program that features the groups singing separately and together—both a cappella and backed by a live band. In a concert that was rescheduled from the 2019-20 season, the program includes favorites like “Operator,”“Birdland,”“Boy From New York City,”and “Route 66,”plus music by Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder, songs from the Great American Songbook, and new arrangements prepared specially for this tour. The two groups previously performed together to celebrate the Manhattan Transfer’s 45th anniversary on a PBS special called The Summit.
