All-Girl Choir's Performance Of "Bohemian Rhapsody" Brings Crowd To Its Feet
Frensham Madrigals is an award-winning all-girls choir at Frensham. Frensham is a boarding school and day school combo for girls in Mittagong, Australia. The choir performs annually at the prestigious Sydney Eisteddfod John Lamble Foundation Australian Choral Championship for Youth Choirs.
When people think of choirs, they tend to think of either religious music or classical music. However, the girls at Frensham decided to do something a bit different, breaking this stereotype. They decided to perform a song that was a little more on the rock and roll side. The song they chose to perform was Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.
When the performance begins, the girls are seen dressed in dark uniforms and staring down at the ground. They perfectly capture the somber mood of the song. When the tempo of the song goes up, the stage is lit up and the girls lift their faces towards the audience.
During the Opera portion of the song, the girls all break away from each other. They turn their bodies according to the beat of the song. During the hard rock portion, the girls do a hilarious air guitar move that brings laughter from the audience. It was a welcome bit of humor in an otherwise serious rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody.
For the outro of the song, the girls come back together. They lower their heads down, yet again portraying the somber mood they had at the beginning of the song. It is a powerful ending to a powerful performance. The audience members all cheer and clap at the end, with some even jumping up to show their excitement.
Many people are praising the choir and have commented on how proud Freddie Mercury would be of the choir's take on Queen's popular song.
The Frensham Madrigals really highlight how choir performances are an art form. Their vocals, body movements, and lighting techniques added a unique spin on Bohemian Rhapsody.
