Home / Funny / Viral / Musician Covers Bohemian Rhapsody On Largest Pipe Organ


Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the most famous songs in music history. It is so loved that people have covered it thousands of times. We heard  28 trombonists, a little kid at home singing it, and  a crowd of 65,000 sang it.

Due to the complexity of the melodies, each new version offers something fresh and unexpected. This time Bohemian Rhapsody was performed on the world's largest organ at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as "the tallest and largest musical instrument ever made", the organ boasts 33,112 pipes. It cost $500,000 to build, a staggering sum considering it was built by New York State's Midmer-Losh Organ Company during the Great Depression. Unfortunately, the organ is only partially functional due to hurricane damage in 1944 and repairs to Boardwalk Hall in 2001.

Nonetheless, talented organist Josh Stafford relied on the instrument's versatility to get the job done and bring the song to life. His hand moves effortlessly over several keys and reproduces Mercury's falsetto in the higher keys. As a result, this "Bohemian Rhapsody" sounds like a grand church ceremony or the busiest sports game in history.

To draw attention to the power of this organ, the Boardwalk Organs YouTube channel has shared this and other renditions of this amazing instrument. Starting in March, current organists will begin offering recitals of the year. Visit the Boardwalk Organs website for schedule updates and live performances.
