Quincy civic Music Assoc.

QUINCY — TAKE 6, a 10-time Grammy award-winning and 10-time Dove award-winning group, will perform Friday, March 8, at Salem Evangelical Church, 435 S. Ninth.

Doors will open at 7 p.m., for the concert which will begin at 7:30 p.m. TAKE 6 crosses all genres from gospel to pop, jazz to R&B and has been inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

In a new recording entitled Rhapsody (due for release later this year), TAKE 6 has been in the recording studio to work on its first-ever treatment of a set of songs from such luminary composers as Gershwin, Ellington, Holiday, Berlin Brubeck and more. Identifying songs that have transcended genre, the group brings their brand of “classic and timeless” to this like-minded material. As Quincy Jones said of TAKE 6- “They are the baddest vocal cats on the planet.” This collection pairs them with some of the “baddest songs on the planet.”

Season tickets are available for $80. High school students and younger may attend at no cost. Faculty, staff and students from JWCC, Quincy University, and Culver-Stockton College gain free admission with their school ID. Public, private and parochial teachers’ tickets are half-price.

Sponsors for the season are The Arthur and Lela Lindsay Family, Knapheide Manufacturing Company and WGEM.
