The a cappella jazz and pop group Take 6 comes to Wentz Concert Hall for a performance at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20. The fine arts department has announced a 25 percent discount in ticket prices for faculty and staff. New prices are $30 and $23; call 630-637-SHOW (7469) to reserve your seat. With its roots in gospel, doo-wop and the sophisticated jazz-influenced singing groups of mid-century America (such as the Hi-Los), Take 6 is both a throwback to an earlier, more genteel era of American music and a precursor for a number of black male pop groups of the 1990s, most notably Boyz II Men.
