Grammy Award-winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth
to perform Tuesday, October 23 at Missouri Theatre

The Grammy Award-winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth is coming to Columbia to perform at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 23 at the Missouri Theatre.

Tickets are $23 and $28, and are on sale now via Ticketmaster and at the Missouri Theatre box office.

While they’re in town, members of Roomful of Teeth will visit the University of Missouri campus to give a presentation on their music and take part in a reading session of works by student composers David Vega, Niko Schroeder, and Ethan Forte. They also will coach and rehearse with the University Singers, who will join them onstage during their Missouri Theatre concert for a performance of “Quizassa” by composer Merrill Garbus.

Founded in 2009, Roomful of Teeth (pictured) is an eight-voice ensemble that studies and incorporates singing techniques from around the world to create what they call “a new repertoire without borders.”

Their eponymous debut album was nominated in three categories in the 2014 Grammy Awards, and subsequently won the award for “Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance.” The album contains their recording of “Partita for 8 Voices,” a composition by group member Caroline Shaw that won the Pulitzer Prize for music in 2013. Their most recent album “Render” was released in April 2015.

Roomful of Teeth has performed in concert halls and at festivals across the United States, and has commissioned new works from composers including Elena Ruehr, Christine Southworth and Evan Ziporyn, Rinde Eckert, Judd Greenstein, Caleb Burhans, Merrill Garbus (of tUnE-yArDs), William Brittelle, Sarah Kirkland Snider, Missy Mazzoli, Sam Amidon, Michael Harrison, Ted Hearne, and Julia Wolfe.
