King of Choral Conductors
Robert Shaw’s work remains, to this day, the gold standard for choral repertory. Maestros Toscanini and Szell both handpicked him to be the choral conductor of their respective orchestras. Mr. Shaw’s choirs had a very special blend of sound and we will find out how he did it! Thankfully, he has left us a treasure trove of recordings and rehearsal videos from which to draw.
