LiveArt at the Townsend Center Features Grammy Winning Vocal Quartet

The University of West Georgia's Townsend Center for the Performing Arts is proud to present legendary vocal quartet, The Manhattan Transfer, on Friday, January 30 at 8:00 p.m.  As the headliner for the LiveArt 2015 Gala and the twenty-sixth season, The Manhattan Transfer with Jazz Trio is the eighth installment of the Townsend Center’s annual fundraiser. According to John L. Walters of the London Jazz News, “There’s no act remotely like New York’s Manhattan Transfer.

The quartet has won 10 Grammy Awards of 20 nominations, has been inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and continues to wow audiences with live performances throughout the country and the world.
