Adam Greene

Adam Greene ©2012 Stacie Birky Greene


Adam Greene’s work often explores connections between language and music, both as an expression of a personal, poetic perspective and as a means of inviting a performer’s commitment to the interpretation of unfamiliar musical terrain. His recent music has been steeped in the Classics, exploring dramatic themes that are archetypal, yet chillingly poignant.

Born in Chicago and raised in Massachusetts, Greene now lives and works in San Diego.

"Guitarist Colin McAllister played the world premiere of Adam Greene’s “Absence” with such beauty and tenderness that I and the whole room held our breath, not wanting its perfect spell to end. I will only say this: It should be played at every event in this weekend’s programs."

-Marcus Overton, The San Diego Union-Tribune, Jan. 5, 2018
