ShoutHouse is an ensemble of 14+ musicians and composers from hip-hop, classical, and jazz backgrounds. Originally formed when members of the afrobeat/hip-hop band "Yes Noyes" began collaborating with orchestral musicians, they aim to build understanding among communities through artistic expression. Over the past five years, the members of ShoutHouse have developed an interdisciplinary form of expression that includes the rhythms and poetry of hip-hop, the freedom of jazz, and the structures of classical music. The group has recently been featured on WNYC's New Sounds, 44 Charlton with Julian Fleisher, and the I Care If You Listen Spring 2015 Mixtape. Frequent guest collaborators include Nuri Hazzard (MC), spiritchild (MC), Hannah Zazz (soprano), Mikaela Bennett (soprano), and many others. The group is led by artistic director and pianist Will Healy and conducted by composer/conductor Alex Burtzos.
