Praised for his "unusually fresh and arresting approach to the piano" (Washington Post), Michael Adcock has cultivated a successful career as both a soloist and frequent collaborator. He appeared as soloist with the Baltimore Symphony and in chamber music concerts with notable musicians including Denyce Graves, James Buswell, Ani Kavafian, Gervase dePeyer, David Jolley, and the St. Petersburg String Quartet.

Adcock was winner of the 1998 Lili Boulanger Memorial Award and made his Carnegie Recital Hall debut the same year. Among other awards received, he was prizewinner in the Washington International Competition and Kosciuszko Foundation Chopin Competition, and has performed in France, Italy and Australia, as well as the US. He received a Doctorate of Musical Arts at The Peabody Conservatory, where he was also an adjunct member of the theory and chamber music faculties. During the summer, he is a faculty member at the Sarasota Music Festival in Florida. Currently, Adcock maintains an active performance schedule, in addition to being a faculty member of The Washington Conservatory of Music.
