    I remember David going back to his Opera Australia days. Very smart, very capable, very friendly and affable.

    Great! Perhaps we can afford to hire back some of the many Principals we lost when we lost our most successful leader to the Kennedy Center. She brought us out of a deep red period into the black. When we lost her our black started to tinge steadily toward the pink.
    We miss you Deborah.
