When it comes to vocal power, The Manhattan Transfer set the bar.

MAR 16, 2018

Celebrating their 45th anniversary in 2017, The Manhattan Transfer continues to set the standard, as one of the world’s greatest and most innovative vocal groups. Winners of 10 Grammy Awards, with millions of records sold worldwide, this amazing quartet is building upon the extraordinary legacy created by founder Tim Hauser who organized the four-part harmony group October 1, 1972 in New York City. Now consisting of Janis Siegel (alto), Alan Paul (tenor), Cheryl Bentyne (soprano), and newcomer Trist Cureless (bass) who replaced Hauser following his passing October 16, 2014, the group is proud to extend Hauser’s vision more than four decades later.

“45 years. It’s quite amazing,” says Paul. “The idea of Tim Hauser has endured and brought pleasure for so many people,” adds Siegel. “We are proud to still be here through all the changes. We stayed true to ourselves. What The Manhattan Transfer does onstage brings so much joy, sharing music we love.”
