School choirs can perform in spectacular ways and still not get any notice. But this group of girls stands out from the crowd and it’s in no small part due to performances like this.
The Frensham Madrigals is a British choir group that specializes in performing Renaissance and early Baroque music, particularly madrigals. The group was formed in 1964 by Michael Howard, a music teacher at Frensham Heights School, a private school in Surrey, England. The choir is made up of around 20 to 25 students from the school and has gained a reputation for its high-quality performances and unique repertoire.
The group’s performance in one of the festivals held by their school, featuring the voices of Charlotte Nicholls and Katie Lee, shows us they stand out for all the good reasons. This group chose Queen’s most famous song, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” for their performance.
It’s shocking, I know, but it has been nearly 50 years since the legendary song by Queen “Bohemian Rhapsody” was first released. The great Freddie Mercury began this piece by himself in the late 1960s and when he introduced it to his bandmates in the 70s, they were confused at exactly what it was. The song took Queen three weeks to record and the result was something truly original and beautiful.
Well the Frensham Madrigals version is absolutely excellent These girls have won several competitions over the years and we can tell exactly why. Watch the full video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
