Spectrum is both concert hall and living room. Nightly offerings are presented in accordance with this philosophy, rounding the delicate line between World Class Classical Programming and Avant Garde Mayhem. We offer a practical and inspired solution to the current musical climate by articulating both these worlds: creating a realistic new home for classical composition as well as a breeding ground for new and experimental genres of music and performance.

ROOMFUL OF TEETH:
Roomful of Teeth is a vocal octet dedicated to re-imagining singing in the 21st century. Through study with vocal masters from non-classical traditions the world over, Roomful of Teeth continually expands their vocabulary of singing techniques and, through an on-going commissioning project, invites today’s brightest composers to create a repertoire without borders. Winners of the 2010 American Prize, two-time TimeOut New York Critic’s Pick and featured ensemble in the 2011 Merkin Hall Ecstatic Music Festival, the group brings audiences to their feet with vibrant performances of all-new music.
