Prof. Samuel Adler Receives Cross of the Order of Merit.

This past Wednesday, Consul General David Gill had the special honor to present the Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany to Professor Samuel Adler, a Mannheim born composer and conductor. Adler began composing when he was 7 years old and became his father’s choir director at the age of 11 after his family immigrated to the US. Professor Samuel Adler is not only a composer, teacher, conductor, author, role model and a source of inspiration – he is also a promoter of intercultural exchange and German-American friendship (that we all feel passionate about).
