Hannaford Hall, Portland

Maine Public is the media sponsor of Portland Ovations Classical Series including Grammy Award-winning vocal octet Roomful of Teeth, live at USM's Hannaford Hall on Thursday evening, January 18.

“Roomful of Teeth is dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice and is perhaps the most currently talked about ensemble today. Their electrifying and “sensually stunning” (The New York Times) repertoire incorporates vocal techniques from all over the world, including Tuvan throat singing, yodeling, Georgian singing, Sardinian cantu a tenore, Hindustani music, and Persian classical singing. Member Caroline Shaw is the youngest winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music for her enigmatic composition Partita for 8 Voices. For their Portland performance, Roomful of Teeth welcomes special guest Pihcintu, Portland’s multicultural children’s choir which has performed nationally, sharing messages of peace and harmony.
