Carrie Henneman Shaw, 2010 McKnight Artist Fellow, brings a sense of adventure and style to the concert stage as a passionate interpreter of Baroque and contemporary repertoire. Acclaimed as a “major musical force” (St. Paul Pioneer Press), for her “flawless vocal agility” (San Francisco Classical Voice) and “plangeant intensity” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel), Shaw collaborates with organizations across the country, such as Boston Early Music Festival, The Newberry Consort, LIBER, dal Niente New Music, Ensemble 61, Zeitgeist and the Bach Society of Minnesota. Shaw has given numerous world and U.S. premieres, most recently the U.S. premiere of the celebrated French composer Phillippe Hurel’s ‘Cantus.’ This fall, Carrie will be heard in the roles of 'Euridice' and 'Roselie' in Boston Early Music Festival's productions of Charpentier's 'La descente d'Orfée aux Enfers' and 'La couronne des fleurs.' Carrie holds degrees from Lawrence University and the University of Minnesota and has served as an instructor at the national Lute Society of America conference in Cleveland. She is co-artistic director of Minnesota-based Glorious Revolution Baroque.
