John Luther Adams Residency

Described by The New Yorker’s Alex Ross as “one of the most original musical thinkers of the new century,” John Luther Adams is a composer whose music and cultural worldview is inspired by nature and environmental concerns. Adams curates a week-long project that draws on his broad cultural interests with performances of his music at various locations on the Upper West Side, as well as a literary event, piano recital, and documentary film screening.

Lisa Moore performs a special program put together by John Luther Adams of piano works by composers who have influenced and informed his work. Composers include Peter Garland, Lois V Vierk, Jim Fox, Michael Byron, David Mahler, and Adams himself.

About the Show

 Founded by mezzo-soprano Carla Dirlikov Canales, The Canales Project’s Between Two Worlds gives voice to issues of identity and culture through a powerful musical message. Canales hosts this event that features music and discussion in three fascinating segments with young activist-artists:

Llewellyn Sanchez-Werner, a pianist and composer committed to social action through music;

Mariela Shaker, a Syrian violinist born in Aleppo who uses music to raise awareness for the plight of her countrymen

Andia Winslow, a Yale alumna and athlete who encourages young people and adults to maintain healthy and active lifestyles.
