Caroline Shaw-7

Caroline Shaw was the youngest recipient of the Pulitzer prize in 2013 at the age of 30! Her winning composition is titled:

Partita for 8 Voices (click the link to listen, Ms. Shaw is one of the performers)

She is from North Carolina, and like many other composers, including Beethoven, her first teacher was a parent (Mother). She began playing the violin at two years old and composed her first music at ten!

Interesting fact: Kanye West has used her music on one of his albums.

Here are some more examples (they are really interesting):

String Quartet

Music in Common Time (very beautiful music)

Its Motion Keeps (music for children's choir)

  1. Mr. Montague, I liked Caroline Shaw's music because in Partita for 8 Voices they used their voices as different sounds and instruments. I think all of her music is very, very, very cool!!!! ~ Christina
