Hailed by the New Haven Independent as “mesmerizing”, Adam Crowe is the principal tubist of the U.S. Coast Guard Band and the New Haven Symphony Orchestra. In his twenty-year career with the band he has toured throughout the United States, Japan, and Taiwan, and has often been a featured soloist. He has performed with B.B. King, Sara Bareilles, Maroon 5, Leslie Odom Jr., Joe Alessi, and Leonard Slatkin.

He recorded Jess Turner’s concerto Heavy Weather for tuba and wind ensemble in 2017. He also has been active with commissioning new music involving the tuba in solo and chamber music, premiering works by Anthony O’Toole, James Stephenson, and Lewis J. Buckley. He performs regularly with the New London Brass, the Hartford Symphony, the Greater Bridgeport Symphony, and other ensembles in New England.

Adam has worked with many area schools as a clinician and is a strong advocate for music education; he has developed and presented educational outreach programs throughout Connecticut and Rhode Island. As a guest conductor he has led the Coast Guard Band in several concerts and chamber programs, and he is the former music director for the Charter Oak Brass Band, Connecticut’s premier British-style brass band.

His wife Sabrina is a speech pathologist, with whom he often argues over the topic of voiced and unvoiced consonants in brass playing. They and their two children reside in Gales Ferry, Connecticut
