The weather was warm night. I wore capri and tank and got a lot of misquito bites.

Bathrooms for our bench seating were behind and to the left. The line gets long, but moves fast. It also helps if the men are aware that their bathroom is just beyond the women's so they don't have to wait in the same line with us. This happened, but once they were informed and left the women's line, the line went even faster. :)

Paul Taylor Dance Company


The innovative Paul Taylor Dance Company makes its Bowl debut in a program featuring signature works choreographed to the music of Bach.

The Paul Taylor Dance Company, celebrating its 50th Anniversary with a tour of all 50 States, is one of the world’s most exquisite ensembles.

Paul Taylor first presented his choreography with five other dancers and himself on May 30, 1954 in Manhattan. That modest performance marked the beginning of a half-century of unrivaled creativity. In the decades to come, Mr. Taylor became a cultural icon — indeed, a living legend and one of history’s most celebrated artists. His two dance companies (Taylor 2 was created in 1993) travel the globe many times over, bringing his ever-burgeoning repertoire to theaters and venues of every size and description in cultural capitals, on college campuses and in rural communities — and often to places modern dance has never been before.

His choreography, once deemed experimental, avant-garde and even “painful” to sit through, quickly became the gold standard of modern dance, one of America’s two indigenous art forms (the other being jazz.) And he bridged, as no other choreographer, the once-distant camps of ballet and modern dance by allowing internationally acclaimed ballet companies to acquire the works he creates on his own celebrated troupe. He has been showered with every prestigious award the United States and France can bestow on an artist. And, perhaps most remarkable of all, his creative powers have shown no sign of abating even after 50 years and 122 dances.

The Paul Taylor Dance Company has performed Mr. Taylor’s works in over 60 countries and more than 450 cities. It has represented the United States at arts festivals in more than 40 countries and has toured extensively under the aegis of the U.S. Department of State. The Company’s 1999 engagement in Chile was named the Best International Dance Event of 1999 by the country’s Art Critic’s Circle. In March 2004 the Taylor Foundation launched a 50-state tour that is taking the Paul Taylor Dance Company and/or Taylor 2 to cities throughout the United States in celebration of the Taylor Company’s 50th Anniversary, and 50 years of creativity by one of the most extraordinary artists the world has ever known.

Orchestra conductor Leonard Slatkin combines the roles of internationally celebrated conductor, staunch advocate for music education, and champion of American music and musicians.

His 60th birthday – being celebrated internationally – provides the focus for the launch of his ninth season as Music Director of the National Symphony Orchestra.

Throughout his career, he has been praised by critics and audiences around the world for his imaginative programming and interpretations of a vast range of repertoire, and those musical aspects have been particularly prominent in his years with the National Symphony. His tenure has included highly lauded European, Asian, and US tours; numerous national broadcasts; and intriguing themed festivals – among them Soundtracks and Journey to America — drawing national attention. Other distinctions include a White House celebration honoring the Orchestra and Mr. Slatkin for advocacy of America’s artistic heritage; a Grammy for Best Classical Recording, awards for programming, and the National Medal of the Arts, the nation’s highest honor for a performing artist.
