RBAI Choir & Orchestra Presents Bohemian Rhapsody

What do you do with 100 choral and 60 instrumental musicians when lockdown prevents them from performing live? You take one of the most iconic and challenging songs of all time and give it a unique choral and orchestral makeover.

Running the gamut from piano ballad to heavy rock, with a bit of opera in between, this piece was recorded, filmed and edited exclusively by current pupils, under the leadership of Inst’s Director of Music, Philip Bolton MBE.

Featuring 160 individual recordings and filmed during lockdown, this is best viewed on a large screen with cinematic sound or listened to through high-quality headphones.

To coincide with the release, the A2 Music students presented Mr Bolton and Mrs Harshaw with a vinyl copy of the RBAI recording and a poster of the artwork.
