    Manhattan Transfer’s ‘last concert ever’ will be Dec. 15 in Los Angeles
    • July 13, 2023

    The jazz vocal group Manhattan Transfer will perform what is being called its “last concert ever” Dec. 15 at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.

    That description appears in a news release from the venue, which is the home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Manhattan Transfer’s official website describes it as a final concert.

    The four-part harmony group was founded in 1972 and has won 11 Grammy Awards. It is known for the songs “The Boy From New York City,” “Operator” and “Java Jive” as well the 1985 album “Vocalese.”

    The lineup includes original members Janis Siegel and Alan Paul; Cheryl Bentyne, who joined in 1979; and Trist Curless, who replaced late founder Tim Hauser in 2014.

    The group is currently in Europe on a “50th Anniversary and Final World Tour.” It will return to the United States next month.

    According to its website, it will perform three concerts at the SFJazz Center in San Francisco, Sept. 29-30, and once in the Haugh Performing Arts Center at Citrus College, Glendora on Oct. 1.

    The Manhattan Transfer was added to the LA Phil’s 2023-24 season in late May. Tickets are currently available by subscription. Individual tickets will go on sale Aug. 22.
