Three weeks after giving birth, she’s back conducting. A record?main
This is Talia Ilan with the New Haifa Symphony Orchestra, three weeks after giving birth to her second daughter Shira Beatriz Ilan-Xu. She tried to change the date, but couldn’t find a sub. So she conducted on two hours’ sleep.
The baby stayed at home with her father, conductor Yi-An Xu, who himself sent a replacement to rehearse his orchestra in Rehovot.
