About The Event
When he was only 11 years old, Adam won the Junior Division of the 2003 World Championsip Old-Time Piano Playing Contest, becoming its youngest champion ever. He won the Junior Division two more times before winning the Adult World Championship at the age of 16, also the youngest ever. He was the only 4-time winner in the adult champion in the competition's 46-year history. Adam made his New York debut in Carnegie Hall at the age of 19, where he performed with Michael Feinstein; and at the age of 21, Adam performed a solo concert at the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage in Washington, D.C. He is a superstar, playing not only with his dexterous fingers but also with his forearm or elbow and, sometimes continuing off the piano keys into the air and then slamming down for the Tiger Rag repeats.
