Orchestras

Jew’s Harp Orchestra

Jew’s Harp Orchestra

With its twangy mouth sounds, Jew’s harp (aka “jaw harp”) is one of the stranger instruments out there. For the most part, it’s an instrument that’s played by one musician at a time, but this ensemble of 30 or so harp players in Russia occasionally gets together to perform as a group, and the layered sound they make is wild.

Aerodynamic Symphonic Cover

Aerodynamic Symphonic Cover

Symphoniacs play orchestral arrangements of popular and classical music with a modern flair. Here, they perform an excellent cover version of Daft Punk’s Aerodynamic, on violin, cello, piano, and electronics. We also rather enjoyed their rendition of Coldplay’s A Sky Full of Stars.

Orchestra Dog

Orchestra Dog

During an outdoor concert being put on by the Vienna Chamber Festival in Izmir, Turkey, a stray dog decided to wander onto the stage and apparently liked what he heard. The pup settled right in as both a member of the audience and the orchestra. Who’s a good boy?

Bulls on Parade: Orchestral Edition

Bulls on Parade: Orchestral Edition

Composer and arranger Nick Proch and his band of merry musicians turn in an exceptional arrangement of Rage Against the Machine’s 1996 classic Bulls on Parade, played on traditional orchestral instruments. We have to say we miss the wah-wah a bit though.

Hip Hop Orchestra

Hip Hop Orchestra

The Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra and conductor JIMEK recently turned in this medley of classic hip hop tunes. We can’t decide if it it was more fun to hear Sure Shot or Get Ur Freak On played this way. (Thanks Michael!)

Legend of Zelda Symphony

Legend of Zelda Symphony

This footage of the Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony recording the main theme medley was exclusive to Nintendo Video but can now be heard by all thanks to NintenDaanNC. Speakers up.
