Roomful of Teeth, the ensemble of Grammy-winning vocal titans led by Williams College choral director Brad Wells, returns here to its summer home to create new works and hone techniques, culminating in a knock-out performance.

Roomful of Teeth is a Grammy-winning vocal band dedicated to reimagining the expressive potential of the human voice. “By engaging collaboratively with artists, thinkers, and community leaders from around the world,” the musicians say, “we seek to uplift and amplify voices old and new while creating and performing meaningful and adventurous music.”

Founded in 2009 by Brad Wells, the ensemble incubated at Mass MoCA, where the original musicians studied with some of the world’s top performers and teachers and commissioned composers who were known for breaking molds. “We have learned,” the ensemble says, “that the boundaries of the human voice are never what they seem, that rules can be bent, and broken, and perhaps they should be.”

“As the world rapidly changes we are cultivating deeper relationships with technology, continuing to expand the capabilities of the human voice, aiming to be unburdened by our own physical limitations. We are excited about new collaborative projects that are focused on the stories of place, home, and community in the diverse environments our planet has provided. We explore these boundaries with passionate curiosity, contagious enthusiasm, and deep gratitude.”

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
