Another Bohemian?!

Pentatonix is an amazing a capella group that I have enjoyed for years.  Here is their version of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody!  Enjoy!

How About Some Cannons?!

May 7, 2017

On this, the birthday of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (in 1840), join me in listening to one of my favorite Tchaikovsky orchestral pieces (not counting any of the songs from the Nutcracker, of course).

And, if this has whet your appetite for more Tchaikovsky, then how about spending a little more than an hour-and-a-half of of your day with some of Tchaikovsky’s best works? Enjoy!

Tulsa Police Officers’ Memorial, 2017!

May 6, 2017

The first Saturday of May is the day that the Tulsa Police Department honors its fallen. This year marks the 100th year Anniversary of Tulsa’s first line of duty death (Sgt. John Herrod who died November 9, 1917, as the result of a gunshot wound when his pistol accidentally fell out of its holster).  Here is a touching version of “Amazing Grace” . . . rest in piece, brothers and sisters.   We will never forget.

May the Fourth Be With You!

May 4, 2017

Happy 4th day of May!  And for all of you Star Wars fans out there, what better way to feed your enthusiasm than some of the original theme songs . . . enjoy, and May the 4th be with you!

Peter and the Wolf!

April 23, 2017

Happy Birthday Sergei Prokofiev (1891)!  Here’s one of his more famous pieces, “Peter and the Wolf” (and one of my favorites as well).  What an entertaining piece to both hold a child’s attention while at the same time teaching about an assortment of orchestral instruments.  Enjoy!

The Fourth Wonder!

April 12, 2017

Here are the Piano Guys performing at the Fourth Wonder of the World, Petra, Jordan, rocking the Rimsky Korsakov classic “Sheherazade” as well as the Indiana Jones theme song.

Happy Birthday Sergei!

April 5, 2017

Happy Wednesday!  And a belated Happy Birthday to Sergei Rachmaninov (his actual birthday was a couple of weeks ago, on March 20th — in the middle of March Madness). Now that we’ve reached the middle of the weak . . . let’s alleviate any built up stress with some of his wonderful music in the background . . . enjoy!

Library Version!

March 11, 2017

Happy Saturday.  Here is a librarian parody of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” that was making the rounds on Facebook last month.  Thank you Shoalhaven Library (Nowra, New South Wales, Australia)  Enjoy!

A Bohemian Kind of Day!

February 11, 2017

If you enjoy “Bohemian Rhapsody” (I do) and if you enjoy movies (I do), then you are sure to enjoy this version of the song using clips from 260 movies.

Glorious Rendition!

January 28, 2017

I have long been a fan of the singing group Il Divo, and have previously shared their rendition of Amazing Grace back in 2013.  Today I’m sharing their rendition of Hallelujah.  Enjoy!
