A leading incubator for cutting-edge a cappella music, Roomful of Teeth has studied both experimental and world traditions, including Tuvan throat singing, yodeling, Korean p’ansori, and Sardinian cantu a tenore. The ensemble’s first record won the Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance in 2013. That same year, one of the group’s singers, alto Caroline Shaw, won the Pulitzer Prize for music for Partita for 8 Voices—a work that put Roomful of Teeth on the map and catapulted Shaw to international prominence. In the years since, the ensemble has performed at the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, and Disney Concert Hall alongside the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Hailed as “fiercely beautiful” (NPR) and “pure joy” (Boston Globe), Roomful of Teeth creates music that is at once primeval and sophisticated, ancient and modern, abstract but dramatic waves of pitch-perfect vocalism. The intimate Appel Room stage provides the perfect venue to experience the expressive potential of the human voice from this utterly unique eight-voice ensemble.

“Their singing is fiercely beautiful and bravely, utterly exposed”
“Experimentation may be this group’s calling card, but its essence is pure joy.”
– Boston Globe
