Composer Portraits

Caroline Shaw

Thursday, February 6, 2020, 8pm

Composer, violinist, and singer Caroline Shaw became the youngest recipient ever of the Pulitzer Prize in Music in 2013, and she’s since taken both the pop and classical music worlds by storm. A “breakout star of New York’s contemporary classical scene” (The Guardian), Shaw is a unique creative voice whose music paints luscious soundscapes with moments of discord and unexpected resolutions. The Attacca Quartet and Sō Percussion, both close collaborators of the composer, perform a program of her works from the last decade.
