MAC Concert Series - FREE

NATURALLY 7 will light up MAC screens April, 9 - 11, 2021 with fan favorites, hand selected by fans the world over. A capella group" so vastly underplays what they create onstage that they had to coin a phrase - "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. Their vocal choreography is so perfectly interwoven that they compelled the musical maestro himself, Quincy Jones, to declare them "The best a cappella group in the world!" Their sonic mastery was on full display in a series of unforgettable performances on "The World's Best" TV show, which premiered on CBS immediately following Super Bowl LIII. Hosted by comedian and "Car Karaoke" collaborator, James Corden, Naturally 7 reigned supreme as the world's "Best Group", and cemented their singular status among the planet's musical elite. Concert is free of charge and can be accessed through the Monroe Arts Center website at monroeartscenter.com/performances.
