London's Juice Vocal Ensemble, an experimental a cappella trio that mixes contemporary classical with folk, jazz, world music, pop, and electronica, features sopranos Anna Snow and Sarah Dacey, and alto Kerry Andrew.
The group's influences range from Meredith Monk and the Beach Boys to Camille (France) and Bjork (Iceland).
Their playful debut album “Songspin” (2011) won an Independent Music Award for "Best Contemporary Classical Album" in May 2012.
For their first U.S. tour since an appearance at the South by Southwest Festival in March 2011, at Wesleyan the group will perform vibrant classical works by U.K. composers including Gabriel Prokofiev, a new work by New York-based composer and Wesleyan alumnus Toby Twining MA '06, and unusual arrangements of British folk songs and pop music by Guns N' Roses, Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Erasure, Kraftwerk, and Donna Summer.
