The SHIFT Festival presents four American orchestras in concert and residencies during the last week of March, and among them is the North Carolina Symphony, playing a concert of music by composers with ties to the state. Among them is Pulitzer Prize-winning Caroline Shaw, who was born in Greenville, and will be playing her violin concerto Lo in the concert. She and Classical WETA's Marilyn Cooley had a chat about the concerto, the creative process, Caroline's other musical endeavors, including her participation in the vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth, and more.
