So Percussion & Caroline Shaw

February 3, 2023
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

ListenHear Series

Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw combines forces with Sō Percussion, known for an “exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor and bedlam.” (The New Yorker) Having recently made her debut as a solo vocal artist, Shaw’s faultless ear for melody and harmony pairs with Sō Percussion’s nearly endless menagerie of instruments and techniques, offering a powerful program of Philadelphia premieres, including Let the Soil Play Its Simple Part, composed together, as well as Shaw’s Taxidermy and the Grammy® Award-winning Narrow Sea. Making their Penn Live Arts debuts, these brilliant artists unveil a soulful world of sonic richness, explored through the medium of distinctly contemporary songs.
