This week, we sit down with one of our favorite American composers and Mike’s fellow Rice classmate, Caroline Shaw.  Caroline is without a doubt one of the most versatile and creative musicians in the Classical world right now and is also the youngest composer to ever win the Pulitzer Prize in Music at age 30. Hear about her unique works for a variety of ensembles as well as her love of the Beethoven Harp Quartet and otters.
