Shea Rose is a Boston-based singer-songwriter and a two-time Boston Music Awards winner.

Her sound is perfect for a show at the House of Blues or Paradise Rock Club. But, what about a completely different kind of venue, like the elegant, sonic cube that is Calderwood Hall at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum?

The Boston Globe: Gardner Museum Goes Pop (And Rock And Hip-Hop)

  • "Calderwood Hall at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is a hallowed space, with pristine acoustics perfect for the type of music already programmed there. Its four steep levels of seating offer varying views of the performers, from a flush perspective of the stage to, at the very top, a bird’s-eye view of it."

The Boston Globe: Shea Rose Brings A Rock/Soul/Hip-Hop Series To The Gardner

  • "I performed at the Gardner last June [2014]. I’m more of a rock/soul/hip-hop artist, and they wanted to bring something different into the hall. I and Simone Scazzocchio, who’s co-curating with me, designed a show that’s similar to a classical piece in terms of the development of the music and how we put my three sets together. They loved it. Soon after, we started having conversations about Rise and what this type of music series would look like at Calderwood Hall."

This segment aired on November 12, 2015.
