Happy Valentine’s Day to Darren K. Woods in 1 Easy Step!
by Melissa Wimbish
If you can’t say something nice about Fort Worth Opera today, nobody blames you.
Today, we received the news that beloved General Director, Darren K. Woods and FWO are calling it quits after 16 years. Or, according to the Dallas Voice, Mr. Woods “has been axed”, which is apparently how you say it politely in Texas.
It hasn’t taken long for the opera community to rally behind Mr. Woods with heartfelt messages and support in the form of donations to Seagle Music Colony where he serves as artistic director and new music specialist. In a public Facebook post earlier today, Mr. Woods expressed gratitude for “the most amazing outpouring of love and support” from colleagues and friends. “I love you all”, he said.
