Adler Sponsorship

“The Adlers represent the future of opera … and why the future of this wonderful art form is very bright. I am proud to play a part in encouraging such extraordinary talent and wish all the Adler Fellows a long and exciting career.”
–Barbara K. Jackson, Adler Sponsor
Support the Adler Fellowship Program and ensure that the most promising young artists receive the training, opportunities, and mainstage experience necessary to launch their professional careers.
One of the greatest benefits of being an Adler Program or Artist sponsor is witnessing the growth of an exciting young musician during their tenure here at San Francisco Opera. Performing in mainstage productions is perhaps the most visible component of the Adler Fellowship Program, but the Adler coaches/accompanists are kept equally busy behind the scenes in rehearsals, coaching sessions, and even offstage conducting. In addition, all of our Adler Fellows receive daily training in languages, acting, musicianship, interpretation, and more; participate in outreach activities; and maintain busy schedules outside of San Francisco Opera in performance and competition opportunities
Be a part of the journey, voice your support for the Adlers today.
