NATURALLY 7 · Saturday, April 15, 2023 · 8:00pm
Emporia Granada Theatre

The jaw-dropping audio pyrotechnics that Naturally 7 put on display every night is absolutely mesmerizing! “This acapella group” so vastly underplays what they create onstage that they had to coin a phase – “Vocal Play” – to more accurately depict what they do. Naturally 7 is more than a tightly orchestrated collection of great singers. They transform their voices into actual human instruments, effortlessly producing music of any genre.
