This page is dedicated to the memory of Fluffy Blake (1967-2017), who served as production manager beginning from the Festival’s founding in 2007. Fluffy was our dear friend and colleague, and she was responsible for creating, planning, and directing all of the stage production that occurred behind the scenes and was well known for going to extraordinary lengths to take care of our artists. Yo-Yo Ma once asked her why she had such a silly name to which she quipped, “Do you really want to go there… Yo-Yo?”
