Above and Beyond: "Reflections of the Rus’"

Concert Artists Guild Winner Adam Sadberry – one of the Washington Post’s 23 for ’23 Artists to Watch – performs Aram Khachaturian’s virtuosic Flute Concerto, originally written for violin.  The DSO also brings you Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 3 in D Major, known as The Polish.

Named one of The Washington Post’s 23 for ‘23, flutist and educator Adam W. Sadberry is paving a distinctive career with his citizenry, creativity, and vibrancy both on and off stage. Holding a Bachelor of Music and Performer’s Certificate from the Eastman School of Music, Adam has played principal flute with the St. Louis and Detroit Symphony Orchestras, and he has previously held positions with orchestras including acting principal flute with Memphis Symphony Orchestra. Adam’s commitment to citizenry is reflected through his collegiate work. He is on faculty at the University of Minnesota, he has held residencies at Lawrence University and Northern Michigan University, and has had performance engagements at Indiana University (Bloomington), Pepperdine University, and Georgia Southwestern State University. He has given masterclasses at New York University, Oakland University, University of Memphis, Rhodes College, and the Harmony Project (Los Angeles). Adam’s work revolves around identity, his grandfather’s legacy as a Civil Rights advocate, and mindfulness that is informed by Alexander Technique. His most popular lectures are Using Your Identity to Create a Relevant Voice in Music and Musical Journalism: Continuing a Legacy Through the Flute.
