Pick of the Day (Tomorrow Edition): A Prairie Pops Spectacular

The other concert series that the Regina Symphony Orchestra present like Masterworks and Government House typically draw well too, but the Pops Series is especially … well, popular. Last January, my sister was in town from Quebec City, and we saw Jason Plumb & the Willing play with the RSO. Tomorrow night, piano pop whiz Jeffrey Straker (pictured) will be performing with the orchestra (Conexus Arts Centre, 8 p.m.)

To give you a sense of what to expect (absent the 60 or so instruments the RSO will bring to the table) here’s the video for Straker’s 2010 song “Somewhere Between”.
