Sam Adler: Building Bridges with Music
One of the most celebrated and prolific living American composers, Sam Adler was born to a Jewish family in 1928 in Mannheim, Germany, the son of Hugo Chaim Adler, a cantor and composer, and Selma Adler. In 1939, the family fled to the United States, where Sam Adler emerged as a leading figure in American classical music.

Adler was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters in May 2001, and then inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame in October 2008. He is the composer of over 400 published works, including 5 operas, 6 symphonies, 12 concerti, 9 string quartets, 5 oratorios and many other orchestral, band, chamber and choral works and songs, which have been performed all over the world.

Adler recently published a memoir entitled "Building Bridges with Music." Dr. Neil Levin, Director of the Milken Archive of Jewish music, will talk to Sam Adler about his career as a composer and educator. The program will also include a performance of the following works:

FANTASY, for piano solo
In Memory of Milton, for violin solo
THOSE WERE THE DAYS, for soprano, and piano
Violin Sonata #3 for violin and piano
FOUR SONGS OF INNOCENT LOVE, for soprano, violin and piano
