Carolina Crown 2011 Repertoire Revealed : Queen & Rachmaninoff

Through all the murmers and rumors Carolina Crown announced their repertoire for their 2011 program "Rach Star." A delightfully tasteful play-on-words the show will feature the following pieces:

Rach Star

We Will Rock You (Queen)
Iron Man (Black Sabbath)
Piano Concerto No. 2 (Sergei Rachmaninov)
Symphonic Dances (Sergei Rachmaninov)
Paint it Black (Rolling Stones)
Piano Concerto No. 1 (Emerson, Lake, and Palmer)
Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen)

Rach Star | Carolina Crown's 2011 Program
Carolina Crown is looking bolster their high-energy classical performances with electric Queen, Black Sabbath and Rolling Stones pieces. I would be shocked if Crown was not again a crowd favorite at finals in 2011.

Crown will also be dusting off a piece they performed back in 2004, Bohemian Rhapsody - which pretty much everyone knows all of the words to.

It will be interesting to see how Crown's interpretation of the rock numbers is different from the many high school and college marching bands that are constantly performing the same pieces.

It will also be interesting to see how many high school and college marching bands will attempt to do the same show as Crown should Crown give us the performance of a lifetime.
