Roomful of Teeth is a Grammy Award winning ensemble of eight classically trained singers who mine the expressive potential of the human voice. Studying with masters of singing traditions the world over, the group continually expands its singing techniques, incorporating, for instance, Tuvan throat singing, Appalachian yodeling, operatic trills, rhythmic exhalations and whispered speech into music written by some of the most exciting young composers of the 21st century.

On this return visit to Newman Center Presents, RoT will perform “Coloring Book” by Ted Hearne and will be joined by Denver’s own The Playground Ensemble in a new work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer and member of the ensemble Caroline Shaw, co-commissioned by The Playground.

“Experimentation may be this group’s calling card, but its essence is pure joy.”

-The Boston Globe

“They are not a vocal ensemble, generic and interchangeable … [t]hey are a band.”

-The Boston Musical Intelligencer
