Texas Performing Arts presents Roomful of Teeth and Mozart Requiem Undead
This vocal-infused double bill features Grammy Award®-winning ensemble Roomful of Teeth and an encore performance of Mozart Requiem Undead performed by the Texas Choral Consort and Orchestra along with Austin-based vocal ensemble Convergence.
Roomful of Teeth is dedicated to mining the expressive potential of the human voice. Formed in 2009, The New York Times calls the eight-voice ensemble “sensually stunning.”
In 2014, TPA and partners Golden Hornet Project and Fusebox Festival presented Mozart Requiem Undead to open the Fusebox Festival at the French Legation Museum. Ten unique composers were each commissioned to rework a movement of Mozart’s Requiem Mass. The only catch is that the composers had to keep the vocal parts as originally written by Mozart.
