The Lyrical Sounds of Amy Shaw
Amy Shaw is our first musician, of ours, that we have ever featured. We discovered Amy while she was practicing in her apartment. Her 2nd story window was open and we could hear her from the street. Several people had gathered to listen to her and we asked if they came here often to listen to her. "Oh yes, we wouldn't miss it. Whoever it is, plays so beautifully." So we went up to her apartment and introduced ourselves. Amy has been playing trumpet since she was 8 years old and was working as a 2nd-grade teacher at the local elementary school in Galveston Texas. We hired her and promptly flew her off to Berlin to join up with Sylvia Wagner and the CMD German Opera Company of Berlin. We think after hearing her play, you will quickly understand why so many people gathered, under her window, to listen to her play.
