A tribute to John Luther Adams

A tribute to John Luther Adams

John Luther Adams is the first AMC President to preside over the new NewMusicBox format where postings to his monthly columns are put right on the page along with his own column. Although editor Frank Oteri deserves credit for the innovation, it is Mr. Adams who has taken hold of the opportunity and shown himself to be a sensitive, thought-provoking, and, above all, quite readable and engaging columnist. It is a shame, as he transitions to former President, that we will lose his regularity and dependability. Good luck, John, and please stay in touch in all ways you can.
