Roomful of Teeth
7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
“Fiercely beautiful and bravely, utterly exposed.” NPR
Grammy Award-winning vocal project Roomful of Teeth is dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice. With a borderless repertoire encompassing singing traditions from around the world, the New York-based octet produces sounds that range “from mere whispers to moments of unearthly beauty” (The Seattle Times). The program will include a piece by the ensemble’s multitalented vocalist and composer Caroline Shaw, who won a Pulitzer Prize in Music for her piece Partita for 8 Voices. Recently exhibiting their innovative sounds at the 2016 Ojai Music Festival, this experimental group continually expands its vocabulary of singing techniques, making them one of today’s most impressive new vocal ensembles.
