Adlers, the Official List

October 2, 2012

Baritone Ao Li, continuing as an Adler Fellow, in the current SFO production of <em>Capuleti</em>, with Joyce DiDonato as Romeo Photo by Cory WeaverLast week, we put together the early betting line on which Merolini will make the 2013 Adler Fellows list, and when the announcement came, the speculation seemed close enough. One addition was the unusual appointment of Phillipe Sly, bass-baritone, a member of not this year's Merola class, but of 2011 — skipping a year, during which he became a winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, and appeared in several Canadian Opera Company productions.

This was the Music News list, now confirmed:

  • Hadleigh Adams, bass-baritone, New Zealand
  • Jennifer Cherest, soprano, Maryland
  • AJ Glueckert, tenor, Portland, OR
  • Chuanyue Wang, tenor, China
  • Erin Johnson, mezzo-soprano, New Jersey
  • Sun Ha Yoon, apprentice coach, South Korea

Continuing Adlers from the current fellows:

  • Marina Harris, soprano
  • Joo Won Kang, baritone
  • Laura Krumm, mezzo
  • Ao Li, baritone
  • Robert Mollicone, coach and accompanist
  • Renée Rapier, mezzo
