Called "one of the most original musical thinkers of the new century" (Alex Ross, The New Yorker), John Luther Adams is a composer whose life and work are deeply rooted in the natural world who will bring his talent and vision to Michigan Tech as a part of the “Ecology and Art Lecture Series” at the Rozsa. Adams composes for orchestra, chamber ensembles, percussion and electronic media, and his music is recorded on Cold Blue, New World, Mode, Cantaloupe, and New Albion. A recipient of the Heinz Award for his contributions to raising environmental awareness, Adams has also been honored with the Nemmers Prize from Northwestern University "for melding the physical and musical worlds into a unique artistic vision that transcends stylistic boundaries."
This free event is sponsored by the Mark Eugene Howard Endowment and in collaboration with the Michigan Tech Department of Visual and Performing Arts.
