THE MUSIC ROOM — By now, you've probably heard close to a hundred covers of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." But you've never heard it quite like this.
Earlier this year at the International Trombone Festival, a group of the world's greatest trombonists got together to perform the classic hit on 28 trombones. Yes, it apparently took a full 28 trombones to really do the song justice. Which makes sense, of course, because there is a lot going on in "Bohemian Rhapsody."
The result of all those trombones performing together is displayed in this amazing video, which definitely has a different feel than the song you're used to, but is just as cool. It's unique and fun and interesting to hear how these instruments get all the parts of the song just right. I'm sure it requires quite a bit of talent, which these trombonists have in spades.
Yesterday's Have You Seen This?
As one of the trombonists, Christopher Bill, says at the end of the video, "This couldn't have happened anywhere other than the International Trombone Festival."
True. And I'm glad it happened.
