Now this noted linguist and cognitive scientist will discuss his latest book, The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person's Guide to Writing in the 21st Century at the Oshman Family JCC.

Under the guidance of San Francisco Opera General Director David Gockley and Opera Center Director Sheri Greenawald, the Adler Fellowship Program offers intensive individual training and roles of increasing importance in San Francisco Opera’s main-stage season.
Each year, a select group of exceptionally gifted singers from the Merola Opera Program is invited to continue their education as Adler Fellows. With Merola participants selected from a pool of over 800 candidates, these young artists represent the future of the classical music world.
Alumni from the Program
Former Adler Fellows include sopranos Nicolle Foland, Nancy Gustafson, Mary Mills, Patricia Racette, Ruth Ann Swenson and Deborah Voigt; mezzo-sopranos Zheng Cao and Dolora Zajick; countertenor Brian Asawa; baritone David Okerlund; and bass-baritones Monte Pederson and John Relyea.
