    The lip on this orchid is very unique.

    Spent some time googling encyclia and epidendrum. I think what it reminded me of was encyclia polybulbum, which it's obviously not, because polybulbum is tiny and this orchid appears to be very large. I wonder if it could have brassavola in its background. The leaves are very thick and narrow.

    So I tried googling brassavola and found Brassavola nodosa x BC star ruby - Orchidées, Artisteries, et diverses lubies which is B nodosa by bc star ruby. This is the closest I could find. Perhaps it will remind someone else of other possibilities.

    I would lean toward Brassavola X Encyclia, although nothing I have seen before. Flower form and vegetation suggest Brassavola, flower count suggests Encyclia.

    Yes, Michael, I agreed with you, from its lip, looks like Brassavola.
