Composer John Adams

During the Britt Classical Festival, JPR hosted special pre-concert conversations in the Performance Garden with Britt soloists, guests, and orchestral members.

On Saturday, August 1st 2015, JPR's Eric Teel talked with Camden Shaw and MilenaPajaro-van de Stadt of the Dover Quartet, and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Adams about the quartet's mindset when performing the music of a composer in attendance, and Mr. Adams' thoughts on his place in the continuum of classical music.

As FM Network Program Director and Music Director, Eric oversees many aspects of JPR's broadcast day. He still hosts the occasional Open Air or classical music shift, and is the driving force behind JPR Live Sessions - our popular series of live in-studio music performances and conversations.
