I hope everyone who's interested in OBT has seen Martha Ullman West's article that appeared in Sunday's Oregonian in the "ArtsWeek" section.

It features Tracy Taylor, who has retired after a remarkable 16 years with OBT. Also mentioned favorably are Matthew Boyes, retiring after 10 years with the company and Karl Vakili, retiring after two 2-year runs with OBT.

The article is titled "Swan Song for Tracy Taylor" and can be read here.

Enjoy!

Thank you so much for providing the link to that lovely article about Tracy. I missed the article and was thrilled to have the chance to read it.

Last week I received a lovely letter under Christopher Stowell's signature from OBT, honoring the three dancers who retired at the end of the 2004-5 season: Tracy Taylor, Matthew Boyes, and Karl Vakili. (I assume it went to subscribers, donors, and ticket buyers.) I'm grateful that I was able to see all three over the last two seasons.

Last week I received a lovely letter under Christopher Stowell's signature from OBT, honoring the three dancers who retired...

...and asking for donations to help other dancers thrive in similar manner. :flowers:

OBT under Mr. Stowell seems much more comforatble with current trends in fundraising techniques, and more power to 'em!

Well, I just realized I have one good gene -- blindness to modern fundraising requests :flowers: Skipped right over it!
