This is a guest post from the Secrest Artists Series:

The Secrest Artists Series opens the 2019-2020 season with a Sept. 19 concert by Take 6.  The concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. in Brendle Recital Hall.

Heralded by Quincy Jones as the “baddest vocal cats on the planet,” Take 6 is the quintessential a cappella group and model for vocal genius. Six virtuosic voices united in crystal-clear harmony, against a backdrop of syncopated rhythms, innovative arrangements, and funky grooves that bubble into an intoxicating brew of gospel, jazz, R&B, and pop. With praise from such luminaries as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald and Whitney Houston, the multi-platinum selling sextet has toured across the globe, collaborated across genres, and is recognized as the preeminent a cappella group in the world.

Join the pre-concert talk at 6:40 p.m. led by Ann Phelps, director of programming for leadership and character at Wake Forest.
