Which of these US presidents shares his name with a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer?
About sixty miles and a few hundred years separate John Adams, the second president of the United States, and John Adams, the composer and conductor of classical music and opera. We’ll focus on John Coolidge Adams, the Pulitzer Prize winning composer from Worcester, Massachusetts. Adams won the 2003 Pulitzer in music for his piece "On the Transmigration of Souls", a New York Philharmonic commission to commemorate the September 11 attacks. Adams has written several operas, notably "Nixon in China" (1987), "The Death of Klinghoffer" (1991), and "Doctor Atomic" (2005).
