I'm a singer and I'm wondering if getting my adenoids removed along with my tonsils will change my sound.

In brief: Improve it

If you need your tonsils and adenoids removed, if anything the surgery will enlarge your bucco-pharyngeal resonator and if anything improve your resonance.
As a professional singer and ENT surgeon, I can assure you that if the surgeon does a good job, you do not have to worry about your voice quality. Just make sure you really need these structures removed.
