Adrian B. Sims

Adrian B. Sims (b. 2000) was born in Seattle, Washington and has been composing music since he was eleven years old. Adrian graduated from Catonsville High School (class of 2018) in Catonsville, Maryland. He has played trombone in a wide variety of musical ensembles including pit and symphony orchestras as well as jazz and concert bands. Adrian has also been selected to participate in the Maryland All-State Band every year of high school and has played side by side with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra several times. Adrian won the Maryland Music Educators Association Composition Competition in 2016 and 2017, and had music he composed presented at the conference. He has been asked to guest conduct and rehearse his music on multiple occasions at local schools such as Catonsville Middle School and Patapsco Middle School. Adrian is grateful for the continued support from his band directors Christopher Gnagey and Cindy Stevenson, and is pursuing a degree in Music Education and Composition.
