Robert Shaw: A Centennial Celebration
A CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION
Saturday, May 21, 2016, 7:30pm, Nativity of Our Lord, St. Paul

To celebrate the 100th birthday of the choral master’s birth, The Singers will fashion a concert program drawn from works that Shaw championed on recordings and tours both domestic and international. From madrigals and motets to Debussy’s Trois Chansons – from Rachmaninoff’s Vespers to folk songs settings by Shaw and long-time collaborators Alice Parker and Gail Kubik, this concert is a retrospective of one of choral music’s most important and lasting legacies.
