AFC with Roomful of Teeth in Ann Arbor, Michigan

  • Rackham Auditorium, University of Michigan 915 East Washington Street Ann Arbor, MI, 48109 United States

A Far Cry stands at the forefront of an exciting new generation in classical music. The 17-member, self-conducted chamber music collective joins forces with virtuosic vocalists Roomful of Teeth, a Grammy-winning vocal octet dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice.

The result is a sonic patchwork that is ever-changing with its fleeting burst of colors, timbres, and visions. The program opens with the lush writing of Caroline Shaw (2013 Pulitzer Prize winner and member of Roomful of Teeth), with the second half devoted to two raw, energetic, and captivating works by Ted Hearne. “A thoroughly modern, century-spanning, globe-trotting sonic adventure. Catch the group live.”
