Berklee Tower of Power Ensemble
The Berklee TOP Ensemble—six vocalists, eight horns, and five rhythm instruments—performs the music of the world-famous funk and soul group Tower of Power. The challenge for students is to perform the music as close to the recordings as possible. Since the group's creation in 2000, Berklee faculty member and ensemble director Wayne Naus has personally transcribed and arranged the music library. The group is one of Berklee's most prestigious ensembles.
