In 2016, Adam composed the score for a brand new musical, 'Grace' which premiered at the The New Wimbledon Theatre. His most recent commission, ‘Speak Up, Speak Out’ was orchestrated for massed instrumental forces and 1200 primary school children from the London Borough of Merton. He is currently working on another large-scale piece entitled 'Thames Tales' which will be performed in May 2019 at the Royal Albert Hall. Adam also recently wrote the arrangements for jazz singer Josie Florence's E.P. 'Nightingale' which was released last year.
