Robert Shaw - Man of Many Voices is a documentary film about the life and legacy of Robert Shaw, music director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, for over 20 years.

Here, he grew the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus into a world-class ensemble, winning numerous prestigious awards.
