Jackie Payne was already a Grammy-nominated veteran blues singer when he began performing with acclaimed blues guitarist Steve Edmonson. The two share a love for the blues and for the lost art of performance that makes each concert exciting and full of energy. Payne's live shows often match the fervor and intensity of a fire and brimstone gospel revival, while Edmonson's melodic guitar playing channels legends such as B.B. King, Jimmie Vaughan and T-Bone Walker. Learn More
Founded in 1977 as the San Francisco Affiliate Artists-Opera Program, Adler Fellowships are performance-oriented residencies for the most advanced young singers and coach/accompanists. 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 Merola Opera Program is invited to continue their education as Adler Fellows. With Merola participants selected from a pool of more than 800 candidates, these young artists represent the faces the classical music world can and should expect to see on celebrated opera house stages throughout the world in the very near future.
Mark Morash is the director of musical studies for SF Opera Center. He has conducted with the Merola program, the Adler Fellow Showcase and Western Opera Theater. Morash has also led performances of Rigoletto with Opera Colorado and Don Giovanni with the Lincoln Theater Napa Valley.
