Gnarly Buttons

Integrating musical creativity into everyday life

GNARLY_BUTTONS_smallerHailed by the New Yorker as “the most vital and eloquent composer in America,” Pulitzer prize winner John Adams is a towering figure in modern music. Rooted in minimalism and the American vernacular, with a generous helping of his own off-beat sensibility, Adams has forged a unique and deeply influential musical identity.

ACM celebrates the 65th birthday of this landmark composer with a concert of his large-scale chamber works.
