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.
