Composer is named president of elite arts academy

The American Academy of Arts and Letters has named Yehudi Wyner as its next president for the next three years. Wyner, 85, won a 2006 Pulitzer for a piano concerto.

The Academy is ‘an honor society of 250 architects, composers, artists, and writers. The honor of election is considered the highest formal recognition of artistic merit in the United States.’
