The Fund for New Work
The Beau Gage and Glenn Ousterhout Fund for New Work was instituted this season with a generous bequest from long-time Board member Beau Gage. Beau and her husband Glenn, who preceded her on the Board, demonstrated their deep commitment to the Company and its creation of new work with years of service. The Company honors their generous gift by establishing a Fund that will support the development of new choreography well into the future. The Gala program will feature the Fund’s first commission, Lucinda Childs’ Histoire.
