Adam created Pulcinella Music Productions to manage large scale projects beginning with the 2009 British Science Fiction Convention orchestral performance. He was then asked to develop the music programme and arranged the first full scale orchestral concert at the London ExCel centre with the Worldcon Philharmonic Orchestra for the world science fiction convention 2014. This also included a special arrangement and performance for Iain M.Banks. His energy and vision for promoting orchestral performances led him to build a team to bring world class musicians and soloists to new audiences.
As a violinist and violist he has performed with orchestras such as Opera North, Northern Ballet, Netherlands Symphony Orchestra and Manchester Camerata as well as tours and recordings with Sting, Corrine Bailey-Rae, Chris Montague, Kit Downes, and Trish Clowes. He is currently working for the musical Annie in the West End.
