Voices Carry 

When: Fri., March 20 2015
Founded in 2009, Roomful of Teeth is a vocal project that, as it's put in a press release, is "dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice." Songs such as "Amid the Minotaurs" certainly present a wild mix of different voices. Think of it as a choir on steroids, even though there's only eight people in the group. The ensemble gathers annually at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (Mass MoCA), where it's studied Tuvan throat singing, yodeling, belting, Inuit throat singing, Korean P’ansori, Georgian singing and Sardinian cantu a tenore styles with some of the world’s top performers and teachers of the styles. You can hear the influence of those different styles of singing in the music. Tonight's performance takes place at 7:30 at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Tickets are $30 to $45. (Niesel) $45–$33; CMA members $40–$30.
