Roomful of Teeth- Parallels Series Concert

Roomful of Teeth 2013-2014

Friday, March 7, 2014
Buckley Recital Hall - 8:00 pm

Roomful of Teeth’s classically trained singers draw upon traditions and techniques from around the world to reimagine ensemble vocal performance for the 21st century. Their performances, described as “world music rock concert high wire act[s],” find Roomful of Teeth singing new music commissioned from today’s brightest composers, including the group’s own Caroline Shaw, winner of a 2013 Pulitzer Prize. Amherst’s encounter with Roomful of Teeth promises to be vibrant and exciting as the group redefines their genre in both reper- toire and style.

Their singing is fiercely beautiful and bravely, utterly exposed. ... It’s just these eight voices gleefully filling up a huge amount of space, and drawing upon a whole world’s worth of non-traditional techniques.NPR
