Septime Webre, who on June 30 steps down as artistic director of the Washington Ballet, will join S&R Foundation as its artistic director, the arts foundation announced today.
Webre will curate the S&R Foundation’s new performance series, titled Halcyon Stage, which will present music, dance and lectures on the arts, said Kate Goodall, the foundation’s chief operating officer.
The nonprofit S&R was started in 2000 by Sachiko Kuno and Ryuji Ueno to support artists and scientists. It has since grown to present various performances and events, as well as the Evermay Chamber ensemble. The foundation’s musicians have performed occasionally with the Washington Ballet, and Evermay Chamber played for the company’s “Swan Lake” last year.
