ESO Symphony Under the Sky – Part two

Saxophonist P.J. Perry is front and center on the stage wearing a brown suit and ballcap. He said hi to his wife in the orchestra and apparently she doesn’t like his suit, but the audience did. He’s not a big guy but he plays big jazz! He set was fun and lively, and people were bopping along.

2:45pm we are now into the Hockey Night in Canada theme song – or the soon to be old one. I think he’s going to play a new version that the ESO plans on submitting to CBC for their contest. Or maybe some locally written ones. A friend of mine actually wrote one and sent me to a link to his version on the CBC site to vote for, which I did of course.

Yup I was right! A friend of the conductor’s named John Estacio, who has indeed written a composition for the contest, is now on stage. Well we just heard his entry and I hate to say it, but Keith – you got tough competition cause it was good! You can all go read about it on the CBC site here – vote and hear his song here.

Here is my buddy’s version if you want to go hear his too – good luck guys! The Cup – by Keith Stacey Rowe

I forgot to mention that the ESO members are all wearing sweat shirts and black pants – instead of their usual tuxedo and tails. Much more fitting in this setting.

Intermission – stay tuned for more . . .
