Community Sing: Take 6
Experience the magic of ensemble singing by attending one of Carnegie Hall’s Community Sings—designed for all ages, no experience necessary. You’ll learn what it takes to be a member of these dynamic groups and experience the power of singing for yourself.
Soul runs deep through the harmony-rich gospel sound of Take 6, and each of the singers in this 10-time Grammy Award–winning a capella sextet possess powerful, versatile voices. They channel the uplifting spirit of doo-wop groups from the 1950s, even as they throw down fresh beats that call to mind the latest R&B and hip-hop. As Downbeat describes, “Like their stylish clothes, the a cappella music of Take 6 is performed with style—always in time, in tune.” The group has recorded and performed with some of jazz’s greatest legends, such as Quincy Jones, Ella Fitzgerald, and Stevie Wonder.
