The other John Adams gets a $50,000 awardmain
John Luther Adams has announced on social media that he has been given the William Schuman award for lifetime achievement. It makes him $50,000 the richer and means he need no longer be referred to as ‘the other John Adams’.
John Luther Adams, 62 this month, won a Pulitzer and had an orchestral best-seller this past year. Alaska based, he paid his first visit to Carnegie Hall in the spring of 2014.
