ATLANTA—The School of Music and the Center for Collaborative and International Arts (CENCIA) at Georgia State University present a one-night only performance with the GRAMMY award-winning vocal project, Roomful of Teeth on Sunday, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. at the Rialto Center for the Arts.
Roomful of Teeth, an ensemble of eight musicians and entrepreneurs build bridges between contemporary classical music and other genres and mediums in inventive and exciting ways. The ensemble continually expands its vocabulary of singing techniques and, through an ongoing commissioning process, forges a new repertoire without borders.
The ensemble also includes Pulitzer prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw, who has collaborated with numerous artists, most notably with rap artist Kanye West for “The Life of Pablo” 2016 studio album. Shaw contributed as a writer, producer and vocalist on three different tracks, lending her stark, conceptual vocal signature to the album.
“We are thrilled to showcase Roomful of Teeth to both our students and the broader Atlanta audience, said Director of Choral Activities, Dr. Deanna Joseph. “Their diverse vocal techniques continue to push artistic boundaries and influence contemporary music across all genres.”
In addition to the main performance, Roomful of Teeth will lead a series of master classes and workshops which are free and open to public attendance including:
