Roomful of Teeth

“Roomful of Teeth is making some of the most rigorously venturesome and thrillingly inventive music being made by any ensemble, vocal or instrumental.” (The Nation) The Grammy Award-winning octet is dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice and is perhaps the most currently talked about ensemble today. Their electrifying and “sensually stunning” (The New York Times) repertoire incorporates vocal techniques from all over the world, including Tuvan throat singing, yodeling, Georgian singing, Sardinian cantu a tenore, Hindustani music, and Persian classical singing. Member Caroline Shaw is the youngest winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music for her enigmatic composition Partita for 8 Voices.

Special guest to be announced.
