Oregon Symphony presents OPEN MUSIC: Caroline Shaw

Friday, March 13
Show | 8pm // Doors | 7pm

Pulitzer Prize-winning vocalist, violinist, and composer Caroline Shaw heads up the inaugural installment of “Open Music,” a new concert series hosted by Oregon Symphony Creative Chair Gabriel Kahane. The program will feature a conversation between Shaw and Kahane, along with a program created by Shaw and preformed members of the Oregon Symphony.

“Writing music is a mysterious thing; those of us who do it professionally are continually baffled and astonished by our sublime and ridiculous pursuit of finding language, meaning, and expression in sound and silence. With Open Music, I want to create an intimate space in which audiences can get a little closer to this ineffable creative path.

For this series, I invite a musician – generally a composer, though not always – to open their brain onto the stage through a concert of their own design. It might include some music they’ve written, but more importantly, it will include music and perhaps art in other forms that inspires and informs their work. Caroline Shaw, a friend and colleague for nearly a decade, is an absolute dream guest for our first concert: she is brilliant, kind, relentlessly creative, and an eloquent advocate not only for her own work, but for any art that’s important to her. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to introduce her to the OSO community.”
