Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one ticket to see acclaimed a cappella group Take 6 in the Ohio Theatre at PlayhouseSquare on Euclid Avenue. The show takes place at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 19 and is sponsored by Tri-C Presents.
Since beat-boxing its way onto the scene in 1988 with a platinum self-titled debut that garnered two Grammy awards, Take 6 has consistently delivered a smooth, instrument-free blend of jazz, gospel, and R & B. The sextet serenades fans into a satiated torpor with its smooth devotionals, only to rile them up again with a rousing rendition of So Much 2 Say. This a cappella sextet has corralled a choir of awards including numerous Grammy wins and 10 Dove awards, with such accolades as Best Vocal Jazz Performance, Best Contemporary Soul Gospel Album, and Group Most Divisible by Three. Selling millions of albums over a span of more than two decades, Take 6 has established itself as a powerful force of mellifluous good.
This event, sponsored by Cuyahoga Community College's Tri-C Presents organization, is held at PlayhouseSquare, an expansive, not-for-profit theater house that entertains more than one million pairs of eyes, ears, and applauding hands per year over the course of more than 1,000 events. Tri-C Presents has been dedicated to bringing exceptional dance, music, and theatre acts to the Cleveland area since 1986. Check out the Tri-C Presents calendar for other upcoming performances.
