Roomful of Teeth, the Grammy-winning octet from New York, merges traditional classical singing with vocal techniques from all over the world, which the members learned directly from Tuvan monks, Inuits, yodelers, throat singers, Balkan belters, and so on.  As NPR put it: “Their singing is fiercely beautiful and bravely, utterly exposed . . . just these eight voices gleefully filling up a huge amount of space.”  Funded in part by a grant from the Cornell Council for the Arts.  Admission will be charged; information to come.
