“ShoutHouse accepts rap as a kind of literary language, and doesn't attempt to use a chamber orchestra to recreate hip-hop beats. It's got a kind of post-minimalist rhythm to it that works really well.”

- John Schaefer, New Sounds (WNYC)

ShoutHouse is a collective of classical, jazz, and hip-hop musicians based in New York. Since their founding in 2014, they have been “experimenting with a whole new form of expression” (The Culture Trip), creating unique artistic experiences that are hard to categorize. With a core roster of 10 musicians, ShoutHouse has formed a community of dozens of musicians, dancers, and visual artists that share a desire to create music that pushes boundaries, performing in shows with up to 25 musicians and dancers. In 2018, their performances ranged from stages at The Kennedy Center, B.A.M. Fisher Center, and the Greene Space, to some of New York’s legendary popular music venues like The Bitter End, The Shrine, Rockwood Music Hall and more. The group has recently been featured at The Kennedy Center, on WNYC’s “New Sounds” and “44 Charlton”, Harlem Arts Festival, and Juilliard’s Cocktails at Cooper Hewitt concert series.
