SFB continues to play musical chairs. No less than five conductors will have guested by the end of this season: Patrick Flynn in "Black Cake" and "Sea Pictures," Neal Stulberg in "A Garden" and "Prodigal Son," Richard Bernas in "The Sleeping Beauty," Paul Hoskins in "L'Arlesienne" and "Symphony in Three Movements," and Robert Luther in "Magrittomania" and "Symphony in C."<P>The orchestra's principal oboist, William Banovetz, passed away in Berkeley, Califonia on January 31. The cause of death was liver failure. He also performed with the San Diego Symphony and the California Symphony and was on the faculty of the SF Conservatory of Music, Mills College, UC Berkeley, and SF State University.

I'm looking forward to seeing program three this Wed. Word has it Joanna Berman will be dancing in "Celts." Is this her first appearance this season, or has she already returned from her injury? I can't wait to see her again.

Iris Fanger reports on the global success of San Francisco Ballet in The Christian Science Monitor:<P>"San Francisco Ballet makes leap to global stage <BR> <BR>Dancers of the San Francisco Ballet usually have just a short walk from the modern building they call home to the War Memorial Opera House where they perform, but this year they will have much farther to travel. <P>After the season in San Francisco ends this month, the company will tour Britain, France and Spain. It's booked into theaters such as London's famed Covent Garden and the Paris Opera House. <P>The jump in prestige and recognition is an unexpected prize for an American dance company based outside of New York, but the SFB is now firmly fixed on the international dance map."<P> <A HREF="http://www.nandotimes.com/noframes/story/0,2107,500471810-500722951-504034605-0,00.html?group=entertainment" TARGET=_blank>http://www.nandotimes.com/noframes/story/0,2107,500471810-<BR>500722951-504034605-0,00.html?group=entertainment</A> <p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited April 17, 2001).]

Well, it looks like we will have another departure from SFB. Acting Music Director and Conductor, Emil de Cou, is leaving at the end of the season, at the conclusion of the Paris tour this summer, due to increasing guest appearances with several American orchestras during the 2001-02 season.
