A top prize-winner in the 1988 William Kapell International Piano Competition and the 1986 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, Dr. Shaw has performed to high critical acclaim at prestigious venues including the Lincoln Center in New York, the Kennedy Center, and Beethovenhalle in Bonn, Germany. He has appeared as a soloist with the Brooklyn Philharmonic, the Cape Cod Symphony, the Dayton Philharmonic, the Richmond Symphony, the Rochester Philharmonic, and the Shreveport Symphony. He has collaborated with conductors William Eddins, Lukas Foss, George Manahan, Jorge Mester, Royston Nash, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, and others.
