Take 6

Take 6 is heralded by Quincy Jones as the “baddest vocal cats on the planet!”
"… Take 6 stays faithful to its creamy vocal blends and gleaming gospel harmonies….That’s good news and glad tidings for fans of this gold-standard a cappella group, which has always sounded best without outside gimmicks.”
- The New York Times
“Whether it’s pizzazz or peace, Take 6 is a cappella glory.”
- People


Clint Holmes

“Clint Holmes is excitement and sophistication!”
- NEW YORK TIMES
“Holmes is wonderful!”
- NEW YORK OBSERVER
“Clint Holmes presses all the right buttons”
- BROADWAYWORLD.COM

 

Nnenna Freelon

“Nnenna Freelon had no problem charming the audience with a bright, rhythmically infectious performance.”
– Mike Joyce, The Washington Post
“Freelon makes each song such a personal statement that they all seem fresh and new...”
– Steve Jones, USA Today
“Nnenna Freelon possesses that rarest of qualities... she makes (standards) sound freshly minted, refreshingly new... her phrasing is original, surprising... she mines the (melodies) for new and hidden meaning... and imaginative spirit that reaches out and bubbles over...”
– Robert L. Daniels, Variety


Shelly Berg

“Berg burns hard, his fingers flying over the keyboard while his body nearly levitates off the bench. Exhilarating... filled with breakneck parallel runs, sudden rhythmic shifts and harmonic modulations that leave the crowd breathless!”
- Los Angeles Times Sunday Magazine
“A whirlwind of motion who never sounds a dull note... (Shelly Berg gave) a lesson in exuberance with a set filled with moments of high emotion and drama.”
- Los Angeles Times
“Who invented Happiness? Walt Disney? Wrong. It was pianist Shelly Berg. It didn’t matter what tune or tempo, Berg genuinely found happiness with the music. His smile and body language were infectious. Berg’s deeply swinging, fluid, and often funky solo work was awesome.”
- LA Jazz Scene

Take 6, Clint Holmes, Nnenna Freelon, Kirk Whalum, Shelly Berg, Frost School of Music’s Henry Mancini Institute Big Band, Miami Mass Choir

Ray Charles, a Georgia native, is an American treasure. He transcended racism, cultural upheavals, and spread his music based on gospel, blues, jazz and country around the world... he is truly the genius! Ray won every major award from the Georgia State Hall of Fame to the Hollywood Walk of Fame… from the Kennedy Honors to a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and induction into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame. On this night we celebrate Ray’s music with an all-star cast of award winning performers. 

This celebration features Ten-time GRAMMY-winning vocal sensation, Take 6; Emmy Award winner Clint Holmes; Nnenna Freelon, the six-time GRAMMY nominee and DownBeat Vocalist of the Year; Kirk Whalum, GRAMMY Award and Stellar Gospel Award winner and Miami's very own Shelly Berg, pianist and Dean of the UM Frost School of Music, his Concert Jazz Band and our beloved Miami Mass Choir, directed by Pastor Marc Cooper!

This concert is presented in collaboration with the Frost School of Music's annual Festival Miami.

Presented in partnership with
