ABOUT THE CONCERT
The Princeton University Glee Club is preparing for another eye-catching collaboration as part of it’s ‘Glee Club Presents’ series: On Saturday December 9th, at 3pm in Richardson Auditorium, they welcome the GRAMMY-winning vocal project ‘Roomful of Teeth’ to share the stage with them in concert, as the culminating event of a mini-residency in which Princeton’s undergraduate composers will get a precious chance to workshop their own compositions created specially for the group. The Glee Club will open the performance with music from Joby Talbot’s Path of Miracles (a work which binds together the ancient history and living culture of pilgrimage across northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela, and which the Glee Club will soon perform on tour in Santiago itself); and as the main event, Roomful of Teeth will perform an hour-long set, before the two ensembles combine for a performance of Merrill Garbus’ Quizassa.
Roomful of Teeth have strong connections with Princeton: our own Caroline Shaw is a founding member of the ensemble and her Pulitzer Prize-winning ‘Partita for 8 Voices’ will be featured on this program.
Friday, December 8th at 7:30pm in Taplin Auditorium
As part of their residency, Roomful of Teeth will sing and workshop compositions by Princeton students, many of whom also sing in the Princeton University Glee Club.
This workshop is free, unticketed, and open to the public.
