The Composer

Adrian B. Sims (b. 2000), born in Seattle, Washington is an emerging

composer, conductor, educator, and trombonist. Adrian graduated from

Catonsville High School (class of 2018) located in Catonsville, Maryland.

His music has been played at The Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic and

selected for the Bandworld Top 100 List. Adrian has also been selected as a

winner in multiple composition competitions including the Maryland Music

Educators Association Young Composers Project and the Make Music Young

Composers Contest. On many occasions, he has rehearsed and conducted

his music in performances at schools across the state of Maryland.

As a trombonist, Adrian has performed in a wide variety of musical

ensembles including pit and symphony orchestras as well as jazz and

concert bands. In high school, he was selected to participate in the Maryland All-State Band several times and

has played side by side with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. He currently plays in the top ensembles at The

University of Maryland and studies with Matthew Guilford, solo bass trombonist with the National Symphony

Orchestra. Adrian is grateful for the continued support from his band directors Christopher Gnagey and Cindy

Stevenson, and is pursuing a dual degree in Music Education and Composition at The University of Maryland. He

credits Dr. Robert Gibson, Professor of Composition at The University of Maryland, and world-renowned

composer Brian Balmages for his development as a composer.

About the Music

Based on William Carlos Williams’ poem entitled “On the Road to the Contagious Hospital,” Awaken invokes

themes of growth, progress, and prosperity. This work begins in the bleakest of shadows then blossoms into

radiant declarations of peace and joy. This work was written in 2020 — an eventful year to say the least.

Although we’ve lingered in the shadows, it is my hope that similar to how this piece unfolds, we will awaken to

greater solutions in order to solve challenges and injustices within our society.

This work may be performed a cappella or with piano accompaniment.

- Adrian B. Sims
