Shaw shared honors in recordings with Arturo Toscanini, and with the Robert Shaw Chorale, he was a best-selling star of the RCA Victor label. As an orchestral conductor, Shaw ended his career with a decade’s long tenure with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. On Saturday at 11, we will hear highlights from Shaw's career.
