First-Ever Live Radio Broadcast from The Reser

Join us Friday, November 11, 2022, at 7:30 PM PT for the first-ever live broadcast from the Patricia Reser Center for the Arts on All Classical Portland! Co-presented by Third Angle New Music and The Reser, this special broadcast will feature music by Pulitzer Prize and GRAMMY® award-winning composer Caroline Shaw and leading percussion quartet Sō Percussion, off their joint album Let the Soil Play Its Simple Part.

Tune in at 89.9 FM in Portland or worldwide via the live player on our website.



The broadcast will be produced by All Classical Portland’s Andrea Murray, who will take listeners behind the scenes in the first half of the program with exclusive interviews with Caroline Shaw and members of Sō Percussion and Third Angle. Then, listeners will join All Classical Portland hosts Brandi Parisi and Warren Black live from The Reser for performances by Shaw and Sō Percussion. Production assistance will also be provided by All Classical Portland’s Sarah Zwinklis.

Celebrated for her compositions for vocal and string ensembles and being the youngest person to ever win a Pulitzer Prize for her album Partita for 8 Voices (2013), Caroline Shaw is a driving force in classical and contemporary music. On Let the Soil Play Its Simple Part, Shaw joined forces with New York-based ensemble Sō Percussion to produce an album featuring innovative multi-genre original productions, sensational interpretations of modern classics, and an “exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor and bedlam,” (New Yorker). Sō Percussion has redefined the scope and role of the modern percussion ensemble, placing it at the leading edge of 21st-century music. The ensemble regularly presents adventurous new works with a unique focus on collaboration, fueled by a belief in the unifying power of music. That power is obvious in the music of their latest collaboration project with Shaw, beautifully blurring the lines between genres, classic and modern music, and Shaw’s roles as co-composer and vocalist.
