The Northwoods series fits in perfectly with MT's new concert format, which they call the Living Room Sessions. Featuring just the four singers and a piano, these more intimate concerts are full of low-key but technically brilliant performances. They also offer the group a chance to tell stories about their long career. ''I knew it would translate to our stage because at Northwoods, the audience is only a few feet from the performer,'' said organizer Todd Nolde by e‑mail. Affordable ticket prices combined with an almost unprecedented level of nearness to the stars made a recent concert with Doc Severinsen and the San Miguel 5 a remarkable experience for fans. We expect more of the same for the Manhattan Transfer.
7:30 p.m. 3320 Cypress Creek Parkway (FM 1960). For information, call 281-444-8861 or visit northwoodsconcertseries.com. $30.
