Alexander Ward takes advantage of a quiet Riverside Park to play his saxophone.
He quipped that he plays in the park to avoid waking his roommates and neighbours, though he does like the sound of acoustic instruments in the wide open.
“I miss playing and seeing live music,” Ward said. “Who doesn’t?”
Ward is usually a pianist and bassist and plays for the band Mother Sun, while also performing at Brewloops and Music in the Park and for Western Canada Theatre. Before the pandemic-related restrictions were enacted. He played weekly at the Central Pub with Kris Ruston.
