“We are absolutely thrilled that Donald is to become our new chief conductor. We have a wonderful relationship and are set for a truly exciting future.” (RTWT)

It’s interesting to think that his minimum number of weeks with the BBC – Scottish Symphony Orchestra is eight. If you do the math, and give a conductor eight weeks of vacation, conductors could have positions with five orchestras leaving five more weeks to guest elsewhere. I wonder what that adds up to in income. (And traveling.)

(And yeah, I’m up at 2:40 AM. I’m learning to just go with it; if I can’t sleep why fight it, right?)
