Stewart Goodyear backstage at Westminster United Church (CBC)
Pianist and composer Stewart Goodyear unveiled a brand new work entitled Eclipse on November 23 at Westminster Church in Winnipeg. He first performed twenty years ago with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra when he was only 12! This concert was his second performance with the MCO. Only this time, he actually wrote the piano concerto.
"When I was around six or seven, what I looked forward to the most on Saturday was going with my family to a Toronto Symphony concert....and listening to different programs and just seeing all the musicians there with white tie and black tails, I definitely wanted to be one of those guys. Even now I love wearing tails."
This concert will soon be available to listen to online through CBC's Concerts on Demand. Right now, SCENE wants to share this behind-the-scenes interview with Stewart.
