John Luther Adams Receives 2011 Heinz Award!

October 11, 2011

Congratulations to John Luther Adams for receiving the 2011 Heinz award recognizing outstanding individuals for their contributions in the areas of the arts and humanities, the environment, the human condition, public policy, technology, the economy, and employment.  This is his second award of this nature (to the tune of $100,000) in the last two years.  Well deserved John!

Nominees must exhibit a passion for excellence that goes beyond intellectual curiosity, a concern for humanity rooted in sensitivity for the well-being of others, determination to see a job through to completion despite inevitable setbacks, and a broad vision which extends far beyond the particular and embraces something universal.
