Paul Shaw

Hailed by The New York Times as “both a virtuoso with herculean technical command and a sensitive introspective artist,” Shaw has appeared on three continents, inspiring appreciative audiences and music critics alike in Asia, Europe, and the Americas. A top prize-winner in the William Kapell International Piano Competition and the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, Shaw has performed to high critical acclaim at prestigious venues including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York; the Kennedy Center and the Hall of the Americas in Washington, D.C.; and Beethovenhalle in Bonn.

He has appeared as soloist with the Brooklyn Philharmonic, Rochester Philharmonic, Dayton Philharmonic, Richmond Symphony, Shreveport Symphony, Cape Cod Symphony, and Minnesota orchestras, and collaborated with conductors Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, William Eddins, George Manahan, Jorge Mester, Lukas Foss, and others.

The School of Music is part of the Division of Performing Arts in the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
