Excellent selection of an extra-strong group:
The 10 singers selected as 2014 Adler Fellows are sopranos Erin Johnson (Washington, New Jersey), Jacqueline Piccolino (Chicago, Illinois), and Maria Valdes (Atlanta, Georgia); mezzo-soprano Zanda Švede (Valmiera, Latvia); tenors A.J. Glueckert (Portland, Oregon), Pene Pati (Auckland, New Zealand), and Chuanyue Wang (Hei Long Jiang, China); baritones Hadleigh Adams (Palmerston, New Zealand), and Efraín Solís (Santa Ana, California); and bass-baritone Philippe Sly (Ottawa, Ontario).
Valdes, Švede, Pati, and Sly have already proved their "stars of the future" mettle.
Johnson, Piccolino, Glueckert, Wang, Adams, and Sly are returning as Adler Fellows. The outgoing 2013 Adler Fellows are soprano Marina Harris, mezzo-sopranos Laura Krumm, and Renée Rapier, baritone Ao Li, bass-baritone Joo Won Kang, and coach and accompanist Robert Mollicone.
