Evansville, IN (01/25/2023) — The University of Evansville (UE) will host a concert, free to the community, featuring a capella group Take 6 on Friday, February 17. The event will take place at the Victory Theatre beginning at 7:30 p.m., and no tickets will be necessary.
Take 6 is comprised of Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joel Kibble, Dave Thomas, Alvin Chea, and Khristian Dentley. Heralded by Quincy Jones as the "baddest vocal cats on the planet," the group is the quintessential a capella group and model for vocal genius. Their six voices unite in crystal-clear harmony against a backdrop of syncopated rhythms, innovative arrangements, and funky grooves to create an intoxicating brew of gospel, jazz, R&B, and pop. Formed in 1980, Take 6 has received 10 Grammy Awards and 10 Dove Awards, and they are the most awarded a capella group to date.
