Andris Nelsons, the brilliant Music Director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and one of the most sought after young conductors around has been appointed to a similar position at the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Naturally, we’ll be sorry to see him go, and wish him well, but we hear that Andris will be staying with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra on a rolling contract until 2014/15, so we’ll be seeing a bit more of him yet.
You might be wondering what this news has got to do with the world self administered pension schemes. Well the answer of course is very little! It’s just that one of our directors, Gay Nebel, is a passionate supporter of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and watching them perform is one of her favourite recreations. Proof, if ever it was needed that there is life beyond Small Self Administered Schemes.
