ShoutHouse is an ensemble of musicians and dancers from hip-hop, classical, and jazz backgrounds. Called “incomparable to anything existing” by The Culture Trip, the group originally formed when members of an afrobeat/hip-hop band began collaborating with orchestral musicians. They aim to build understanding among different artistic communities through shared expression. Over the past five years, the members of ShoutHouse have developed an interdisciplinary form of performance that includes the rhythms and poetry of hip-hop, the freedom of jazz, and the structures of contemporary classical music. The group has recently been featured at The Kennedy Center, on WNYC’s “New Sounds” and “44 Charlton”, and at the Harlem Arts Festival. Frequent collaborators include emcees Nuri Hazzard, Akinyemi, and Spiritchild, Balkan saxophonist Connell Thompson, sopranos Hannah Zazz and Mikaela Bennett, and many others. They are directed by composer Will Healy.
Juilliard School performances are made possible by the generous support of Dinny and Lester Morse.
