Julia Wolfe received the 2015 Pulitzer Prize in Music for her composition “Anthracite Fields,” just announced at 3:00 pm EST.

Judges described Wolfe’s work as a “powerful oratorio for chorus and sextet evoking Pennsylvania coal-mining life around the turn of the 20th Century.”

Julia Wolfe, born 1958, is an American composer who graduated from the University of Michigan.

The other finalists in the category were Lei Liang for “Xiaoxiang” and John Zorn for “The Aristos.”
