Adam Gorb’s compositions include orchestral, ensemble, chamber, solo and choral works, and have been performed, broadcast and recorded world-wide. His works have been performed by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the Maggini Quartet, the BBC Singers, the Tokyo Kosei Wind Ensemble, the Royal Marines and the Liverpool 10/10 ensemble. He is Head of School of Composition at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. He has a PhD in Composition from the University of Birmingham and has taught at universities in the USA, Canada, Japan and many European countries. His opera Anya17 (2012) was premiered in Liverpool and Manchester to great acclaim – there have subsequently been productions in Germany in and the USA. Cal State LA Professor Tanya Kane-Parry directed the Southern California debut of this opera with Angels Vocal Art in 2016.
“This American premiere takes an unflinching look at the harsh realities of modern slavery and human trafficking through the gripping story of Anya – a young woman who is coerced into slavery with the promise of a better life in the West. Intense, moving, and not to be missed.” – OperaParallПle
