Cellist and teacher Ádám Szabó was born in Sydney, and completed his Bachelor of Music degree at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 2010, under the guidance of Zoltán Szabó and Daniel Yeadon. Upon graduating from the Conservatorium, he was awarded a Sydney Symphony Orchestral Fellowship, after which he was engaged as a contract member of the orchestra. As a student, Ádám was also the Principal Cello of the Australian Youth Orchestra, a member of the Sydney Symphony Sinfonia, and a cellist in the European Union Youth Orchestra. In 2012/13, Ádám continues his studies in the United Kingdom, under the direction of Hannah Roberts at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Within Australia, Ádám has performed extensively with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and the Sydney Symphony Fellowship Ensemble, the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s ACO2, as well as with the Fitzroy Ensemble, (a chamber ensemble founded by Szabó in 2011). In addition, he has worked on a freelance basis with Sydney Chamber Opera, the Melbourne and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras, and the Australian World Orchestra.

More recently, Ádám has relocated to the UK for further study, a move made possible by the generous support of the Australian Music Foundation, the Waverly Fund, and the Royal Northern College of Music. In the UK, Ádám plays regularly with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Orchestra of Opera North. Recent highlights of the 2012/13 season include 1st Prize at the prestigious biennial John Ireland Competition; performances of Pierrot Lunaire at the Southbank Centre, London; and a chamber recital in Wigmore Hall.

In 2013, Ádám will return to Sydney for performances with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, as part of their Emerging Artists programme.
