My family and I are very grateful for your friendship and support.
Major projects and tours during the CBSO’s 2020-21 season will take place as planned, with some modifications to her schedule.
Everyone at the CBSO would like to congratulate Mirga on this exciting news.
Slipped Disc joins warmly in the felicitations.
Mirga, 33, is unmarried and does not disclose the name of her partner, who often travels with her, as do her own parents.
Picture from her first pregnancy in 2018.
Her first child, a boy, was born in August 2018. Mirga decided soon after to withdraw from all guest conducting in order to spend time with the baby. That withdrawal will presumably be extended now for anther year or two.
