Jacobs School of Music voice faculty members Sylvia McNair and Marietta Simpson recently performed in a star-studded gala recital celebrating the legacy Robert Shaw. The event entitled “Stars Shine on Shaw,” also featured Christine Brewer, Lynn Harrell, and ASO Music Director and pianist extraordinaire, Robert Spano. The concert took place on Sunday, November 10th in Atlanta Symphony Hall in Atlanta, GA, where Shaw served as ASO Music Director for more than two decades. The proceeds from this event will benefit the making of the documentary, “Robert Shaw: Man of Many Voices,” about the legendary choral conductor. The documentary will combine archival footage with interviews and narration to present a picture of Shaw’s life and career, and will deal with such questions as how he managed to achieve such stellar success without formal music education.
