Roomful of Teeth is not your typical classical ensemble—not in name, and not in performance: Its eight classically trained vocalists have studied Tuvan throat singing, belting and pop techniques, yodeling, and Inuit throat singing. Each concert feels less like a classical new-music performance and more like a rock show, or a high-wire act. And it’s a very successful approach: The group’s first album, Roomful of Teeth, earned raves from critics ranging from NPR to Pitchfork and made tons of Top 10 lists for 2012; the octet won the 2010 American Prize and two TimeOut New York Critic’s Picks; and member Caroline Shaw won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Music for her composition Partita for 8 Voices, which Roomful of Teeth performs. Dedicated to reimagining vocal music in the 21st century, Roomful of Teeth brings audiences to their feet with vibrant performances of all-new—really all-new—music.

Presented by: Town Hall as part of the Town Music series, curated by Joshua Roman. Series supported by the Wyncote Foundation NW and the Tagney-Jones Family Fund. Series media sponsorship provided by Seattle Weekly and KING-FM.
