Shawn Keener

Shawn Keener has been winning over multimedia skeptics with stylish, intelligent presentation design since 2012. As a musicologist, editor, and graphic designer with an upbringing in the theater, she brings a unique skill set to creating concert backdrops that are visual extensions of historically informed performance. She has an ongoing relationship with the Newberry Consort—notably “Rosa das Rosas: Cantigas de Santa Maria” (2012–15) and “Le Roman de Fauvel” (2016)—and created the projection for Les Délices/Blue Heron’s program of Machaut’s “Remède de Fortune” (premiered in 2017; toured the Pacific Northwest in 2019). Now a freelance editor and powerpoint designer, Shawn formerly served as a staff editor in the Recent Researches series at A-R Editions, the leading North American publisher of scholarly editions of music.
