Adam Howard is a native Mancunian. For those of you who blink at that statement, it means he was born and bred in Manchester, UK. So, you can imagine Adam's delight at recently being invited to do the musical direction for the Manchester United Gala Banquet dinner at Emperor's Palace. Adam arranged the music and conducted the Johannesburg Festival Orchestra for this prestigious function at which the Bala Brothers lent their voices.
Adam is also kept busy in his time away from the Howard Music studio as a prolific trumpet player and, amongst his other performance outings, is currently playing trumpet for the house band on Strictly Come Dancing. He also played at Starlight Classics with the Johannesburg Festival Orchestra, Aardklop with the Johnny Cooper orchestra and a string of performances with Gloria Bosman, Cut Glass, Tim Moloi and others. He was also responsible for the musical direction on a SAPPI event in Umkomaas, once again conducting the Johannesburg Festival Orchestra.
Back at home base, Adam has been very busy keeping the Howard Music studios trucking. We've settled in at the Ministry Of Illusion in Bryanston and Adam has completed final mix on several of the MOI projects, including the latest Outsurance and Silversands TV commercials.
On the composing front, Adam has just finished ads for Unicef and Nutriday. You can click on the links below to view these ads. Unicef was commissioned by Saatchi & Saatchi Jhb and the Nutriday soundtrack was recorded for Y&R. Click here to view UNICEF.Click here to view NUTRIDAY.
