Born in Vancouver, BC, 1996, Adam Boeker grew up in Fort McMurray, Alberta, where he started playing the piano at age 8. At age 13, Adam was accepted to Chetham’s School of Music, Manchester, UK on a Yamaha scholarship where he studied under British concert pianist, Murray McLachlan. During his time at “Chets”, Adam won second place in the European Piano Teachers Association UK competition, won Chetham’s Concerto Competition, playing Prokofiev Piano Concerto no. 3, and was a piano finalist in the BBC Young Musicians competition. In 2012, Adam performed Weinberg’s Piano Quintet in Canmore, AB with the celebrated Zemlinsky Quartet from Prague, winners of the Bordeaux 2012 String Quartet Competition.

Since graduating, Adam attended Hochschule für Musik und Theater Rostock, Germany where he studied under Matthias Kirschnereit and later the Conservatorio di Musica, Salerno, Italy, under Giulio De Luca. As of October 2018, Adam studies under Professor Hubert Rutkowski in Hamburg.

This concert will be followed by Scott Timberg, author of Culture Crash in conversation with Jason Cutmore.

Alberta Pianofest’s founder and director is joined on stage by American author and music writer Scott Timberg to discuss the future of classical music. Winner of the National Arts & Entertainment Journalism Award for his recent book, Culture Crash: The Killing of the Creative Class, Timberg offers a thought-provoking discussion on the state of modern culture and the “crisis of the creative class in America” and beyond.
