Robert Shaw - Man of Many Voices

Directed by Peter Miller and Pamela Roberts

(60 min., 2016)

New York Premiere!


Produced in celebration of Robert Shaw's 100th birthday's, Robert Shaw – Man of Many Voices, is a documentary based on the life, legacy and music of Robert Shaw, considered internationally as the icon of choral music.  Robert Shaw – Man of Many Voices will trace the journey of a small town California boy who planned to be a minister like his father, but instead became the greatest conductor of choral music the world has ever known. At the heart of the film is the mystery of Shaw’s genius. With no formal musical training, he achieved a stunning early success in popular music and later became legendary for his interpretations of classical music’s great choral masterpieces.
