Teaching Artist Avery Griffin’s Vocal Ensemble Wins Grammy

Posted January 27, 2014

Roomful of Teeth 

Although we didn't win either of the two Grammys for which we were nominated, we are thrilled that Roomful of Teeth, the vocal ensemble including one of our Teaching Artists, Avery Griffin, did. Brad Wells & Roomful of Teeth's recording Roomful of Teeth won for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance.

Best Classical Instrumental Solo went to Evelyn Glennie with the Albany Symphony, David Alan Miller, conductor for their performance of Corigliano's Conjurer - Concerto for Percussionist and String Orchestra. Yefim Bronfman's recording of Lindberg's Piano Concerto No. 2 with Alan Gilbert and the Philharmonic was nominated.

Best Contemporary Classical Composition went to Maria Schneider's Winter Morning Walks. The Lindberg concerto, in the same performance listed above, was nominated.

Congratulations to all
