On Friday, October 27, 2017 at the Crowell Concert Hall, the GRAMMY Award-winning vocal project Roomful of Teeth performed “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.
The group 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.
