In 1981 he assisted in the restoration of the 1883 Moline organ at St. Mary-s; this work led to further assistance with the Quimby Pipe Organ Company in similar projects.�

Joseph Adam has been the organist at St. James Cathedral in Seattle since 1993 and is a faculty member at the University of Puget Sound. Mr. Adam holds a BMus and MMus degrees from the University of Iowa and a performer's certificate from the Eastman School of Music.
