Orchestras have been part of Simon Woods’ life for more than 40 years. From playing clarinet, to conducting, composing, producing over 200 CDs, and running four orchestras, he has never strayed far from this art form he loves. And although a Brit running an American association might seem odd, he’s a naturalized U.S. citizen, and is proud to be able to support the amazing orchestras of this country. When off duty, he’s most likely to be found cooking or playing Bach Preludes and Fugues on the piano.
