Adam Sadberry

Eastman Community School of Music

Graduation can be a fraught time, filled with questions about what's next. Flutist Adam Sadberry , about to graduate from the Eastman School of Music, has no such worries--he recently won the Detroit Symphony Orchestra's African-American Fellowship, and will be a member of the DSO flute section for the next 2 years. On the next Backstage Pass, Adam will talk with Julia Figueras about the fellowship, his turn on NPR's From the Top, and more...and play works by Georges Enesco, William Grant Still, Erwin Schulhoff, and Frank Martin.
