When conductor William Eddins "wiggles his bum," it gets 'em talking in Alberta. In a concert a few weeks ago in Edmonton, he didn't exercise enough restraint for at least one member of the audience, who complained to the local paper. Others rushed to Eddins' defense, and now the story is being picked up on this side of the border.
Eddins is in his fourth season as music director of the Edmonton Symphony. He moved to Canada from Minneapolis, where he headed the Prospect Park Players for seven years and also served as Minnesota Orchestra associate conductor.
