Take 6, local choir highlight holiday concert


Have yourself a jazzy little Christmas. Sprinkle in some rhythm and blues and gospel and put it holiday style and you have the most wonderful time of the year on stage.

A cappella group Take 6 will play a holiday concert, “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” at the Clark State Performing Arts Center’s Kuss Auditorium at 8 p.m. Saturday.

The show is presented by the Springfield Arts Council and is appropriate for all ages.

With Take 6, the voice becomes an instrument through harmonies and vocal talents that have netted the group Grammy Awards, Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, Soul Train Awards and NAACP Image Awards over its 25-year existence.

Take 6 was at the forefront of vocal-based performances before singing shows such as Glee and The Sing Off made the style popular with a wider audience.

“The incredible range of styles that Take 6 brings to this performance, along with their incredible talent honed over many years of performing together, makes this an extra special evening for our audience,” said Tim Rowe, Managing Artistic Director of the Springfield Arts Council.

A bit of local flavor will begin the show with The Springfield Gospel Choir as the opening act. It will feature Par Tolliver’s Muzika Gospel Group and include members of other area churches, according to Rowe.

Rowe said local individuals and groups have participated in previous holiday programs. He added that Saturday’s two acts complement each other.

“Take 6 has a deeply-rooted gospel music history and the choir is well-rooted and respected in the Springfield community, so this is a great way to add a special treat to our holiday show,” he said.

Group discounts are also available for this show. For more information, call 937-324-2712.
