Naturally Sharp, Drexel’s Vocal Jazz Ensemble, will perform jazz standards and classic favorites on Friday, May 7th and Saturday, May 8th at 8:20 PM in the 6th floor dining room of MacAlister Hall (33rd & Chestnut Sts). A talented group of 14 select Drexel students, Naturally Sharp has been providing soothe sounds to rapt audiences for years under the direction of Dr. Steven Powell, who is celebrating his 20th year at Drexel.

This year’s concert will feature selections from the big band era to contemporary jazz, with such favorites as “It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing”, “At Last”, “They Can’t Take That Away From Me” and “The Way You Look Tonight”. Naturally Sharp will be accompanied by a three piece band and coffee, tea and pastries will be served. Tickets are $6 and will be available for purchase at the door. Combine the sounds of Duke Ellington, Cole Porter and “anything that swings” with a hot cup of coffee, a handful of sweet treats and a gorgeous view of Philadelphia at sunset for the perfect way to begin a weekend.
