Caroline Shaw

Sound Off with Katy Henriksen


Spend time with Caroline Shaw and some of her music in Sound Off's season finale. A composer and multi-instrumentalist, Shaw became the youngest person to ever receive a Pulitzer Prize for music for her "Partita for 8 Voices." She was only 30 at the time. Orange, an album with the Attacca Quartet, garnered a Grammy in 2020. A polymath collaborator, she's involved in creating music with so many notable musicians, including the unexpected Kanye West, whose music rests far outside the realms of contemporary classical music. Join host Katy Henriksen and Shaw in conversation on the creation of Orange, her deep love of the string quartet tradition and what's keeping her going during the pandemic, as well as experience some of Shaw's music.
