I usually eschew the autobiography here, but wanted to just put the happy word out that Samuel Miles Woods (our first) was born on Monday, the 17th of March at 5:30 PM. His Irish grandfather was very proud of him coming on St Patrick’s Day.
A true conductor’s son, he seemed to happily go 2 weeks past his due date so I could finish all my concerts, and started heading into the world just a few hours after I finished Beethoven 5 on Saturday evening. I’ll always owe him for not choosing to arrive in the middle of Xenakis or Downie last week!
Blogging may be a bit irregular or non-existent in the coming weeks, but we’ll see.
