"[Roomful of Teeth] scour the globe for ways to expand their sonic palette."
--The Hartford Courant

The GRAMMY Award-winning vocal project Roomful of Teeth is dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice. Through study with masters from vocal traditions the world over, the eight-voice ensemble has continually expanded its vocabulary of singing techniques. Since 2009, the group has forged a new repertoire without borders, collaborating with Rinde Eckert, Glenn Kotche, and the Silk Road Ensemble, among other artists.

At Wesleyan, the group will perform “Dumas' Riposte” by Toby Twining MA '06, Caroline Shaw’s “Partita for Eight Voices,” William Brittelle’s “High Done No Why To,” Judd Greenstein’s “Run Away,” Caleb Burhans’ “Beneath,” and Merrill Garbus’ “Quizassa” with the Wesleyan Concert Choir.

Please note that there is no late seating for this concert.

The concert will be approximately 90 minutes with one intermission.

Recordings by Roomful of Teeth will be available for sale at the concert.

Funded in part by the Expeditions program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional support from the six New England state arts agencies.
