The Manhattan Transfer showcase their stunning harmonies in an intimate concert setting, dubbed The Living Room Sessions. The million-selling vocal quartet were the first group ever to win Grammy Awards in both pop and jazz categories in the same year, and they'll get the joint jumping with huge hit favorites like "The Boy from New York City," "Spice of Life," "Operator," "Route 66," "Chanson D'Amour" and more. Tim Hauser, Cheryl Bentyne, Alan Paul and Janis Siegel are also set to share stories from their long careers and revisit some lesser-known gems from their massive catalog, which includes 1985's Vocalese. That disc's 12 Grammy nominations were the most ever awarded to a single album. Cascade, an ensemble of the Portland Gay Men's Chorus, provides the perfect a cappella opener. Learn More

Hailed by The New York Times as “something extraordinary,” the Parker Quartet has rapidly distinguished itself as one of the preeminent ensembles of its generation. The quartet began its professional touring career in 2002 and garnered international acclaim in 2005, winning the Concert Artists Guild Competition as well as the Grand Prix and Mozart Prize at the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition in France. In 2009, Chamber Music America awarded the quartet the prestigious biennial Cleveland Quartet Award. The Parker’s recording of the Ligeti Quartets won a 2011 Grammy award for Best Chamber Music Recording.
