Caballito Negro Presents Work Of John Luther Adams


The composer John Luther Adams is famous for creating works about the great outdoors, many inspired by his years living in Alaska. 

Adams won a Pulitzer Prize for "Become Ocean" in 2014.  Another work, "songbirdsongs," (lower-case letters deliberate) plays to an audience in Ashland this weekend (September 29). 

Tessa Brinkman and Terry Longshore of Caballito Negro perform, with a roster of guest artists.  Tessa and Terry visit the studio with a preview.
