VOX: The Rob Seible Singers, of Houston, Texas, placed second.
In making their decision, the judging panel commented that ROOMFUL OF TEETH exhibited “accurate pitch/intonation…with seamless transitions…really unique…stunning.”
Roomful of Teeth is an eight-voice vocal ensemble that embraces the full spectrum of vocal practices and, through an on-going commissioning project, develops new compositions using the fullest possible range of vocal techniques. Launched in 2009, the ensemble of young, classically-trained singers studies with international experts in vocal techniques ranging from Tuvan throat singing to yodeling. The ensemble commissions composers to write music utilizing their ever-expanding palette of vocal colors.
Congratulations to both ROOMFUL OF TEETH and the VOX: The Rob Seible Singers, for their outstanding achievement, ranked among the finest professional choruses in the country.
