Dubbed "the Chagall of violinists" by The Jerusalem Post, Belgian soloist and conductor Michael Guttman leads Symphony Napa Valley on an exploration of The Art of the Violin in this matinee concert. Guttman and the orchestra start off with a pair of pieces by romanticist Felix Mendelssohn before launching into a Mozart divertimento and two works by Belgian countrymen Henri Vieuxtemps and Eugène Ysaÿe, before wrapping up this eclectic show with tango master Ástor Piazolla. In fact, Guttman leads his own tango quartet, along with serving as the principal guest conductor of the Brussels Chamber Orchestra, the leader of the acclaimed Arriaga Quartet and the founder and artistic director of the highly-regarded Tuscan music festival known as Pietrasanta in Concerto.

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.
