Praised in the New York Times “as graceful vocally as she was in her movements”, “consistently stylish” (Boston Globe), and as a “cool, precise soprano” (Chicago Tribune), Carrie Henneman Shaw is based in The Twin Cities and Chicago, two of the country's most supportive arts communities. A member of Chicago’s Ensemble Dal Niente, Pesedjet, and Quince Contemporary Vocal Ensemble, and contributor to many of St. Paul and Minneapolis's new music projects, Shaw is a McKnight Performing Musician Fellow and has earned arts entrepreneurship awards in her role as co-director of St. Paul’s Glorious Revolution Baroque. She has performed and created a number of live-music-for-dance projects, including Jocelyn Hagen's Slippery Fish, her Wright Brothers dance-opera Test Pilot, and James Sewall Ballet's Rib Cage. Carrie earned degrees in English and voice performance from Lawrence University and completed a doctorate at the University of Minnesota, and she currently teaches at Bethel University.
