Watch Maestro Bill Eddins's swimsuit competition video

Bill Eddins 425.jpg

Yesterday I posted news of an opera conductor swimsuit competition being held by the blog Opera Candy. It seemed unlikely that any serious conductor would accept the blog's invitation to submit a swimsuit video, but the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra's Bill Eddins has in fact tendered a submission. "This," Eddins writes on his Sticks and Drones blog, "is too good to resist."

I won't spoil the surprise at the end of this video, but I will say this maestro has some great gams.

In the majority of instances I'd disagree about the spandex, but in your demo Mr. Eddins, I take exception to that. Ride on Maestro!
