“The William Tell Overture” is not exactly what anyone would call a new release, having debuted all the way back in 1829. For those of you who may not have heard about it so far, this is the overture to the opera William Tell whose music was composed by Gioachino Rossini.
The overture is definitely not on most of today’s younger generation’s music playlist, but the talented choir members in the video below managed to give it a youthful spin that people of all ages can appreciate.
The Timpanogos High School Choir performed Rossini’s Overture at their final concert in May, and it was a moment that no one will be able to forget anytime soon. That’s because the performance featured some surprising horsey choreography, as well as some very strong facial expressions that are bound to make you laugh out loud.
Of course, there are no actual horses in the opera. However, Rossini’s dynamic, galloping music is often used in movies and commercials to represent a hero riding to the rescue, so this approach is not so far-fetched.
There is no way you can watch this and keep a straight face, so go ahead and hit Play.
