How It All Began

Adam is a passionate collaborator of new music and an avid orchestral musician. He has championed the creation of new music by debuting new works annually at the Peabody Institute's Composition Department recitals, and through the 'Now Here This' concert series. He performs regularly under the baton of Baltimore Symphony's Marin Alsop as a member of her own Peabody Conductor's Orchestra. As of late, Adam has performed as the concertmaster for Peabody Symphony Orchestra, with works by Mendelssohn, Price, and Piazolla.

Adam has a passion for community ensemble performances. He was a member of the Peabody String Sinfonia since 2019, a string orchestra group that performs for hospitals, homeless shelters, rehab centers, libraries, and other venues in Baltimore city that typically don't have access to live music. Sinfonia concerts would include any music between Michael Jackson and Edward Elgar. He is also a current member of the 'Bach in Baltimore' concert series, a community orchestra that performs baroque music in venues around Baltimore city. From baroque to contemporary, Adam will perform it all. 

Born in Detroit, Adam Davis was brought up in a musical family. Since the age of 3, Adam began studying the violin under mentorship of local Detroit violinist Elaine Osterbur. His professional career began at the age of 15 as he studied with Assistant Concertmaster of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra Hai Xin Wu. He completed his bachelor’s degree at the Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins under the tutelage of Professor Qing Li, Principle Second Violinist of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.  He is currently pursuing a master's degree at the University of Delaware as a Master Players graduate recipient.
