WATCH: The Philadelphia Orchestra Performs “Fly, Eagles, Fly”
The orchestra congratulated the new NFC East champs on Sunday – and wished Carson Wentz well.
The Philadelphia Orchestra performed “Fly, Eagles, Fly,” and it’s pretty wonderful.
Maybe the best part is famed conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin wearing an Eagles jersey (#8, because he’s the orchestra’s eighth conductor). He leads the orchestra through a version of the fight song written by composer Jim Gray, per Philly.com.
In a tweet, the orchestra congratulated the new NFC East champs – and wished Wentz well.
They'll be playing your version at the Super Bowl ! pic.twitter.com/PtPu51VCjK
