Musical Monday - Timpanogos High Choir Sings William Tell Overture (Funny)

You have to understand.  The William Tell Overture was the theme song for the old television show, The Lone Ranger.  When my brother was about 3, every time that theme played he galloped around the dining table until it was finished.  So imagine my surprise when surfing YouTube to find this choir using that very piece and doing some horsey impersonations.  

Not only is this fun but they sing beautifully.  Speed is a bit of an issue in my mind at times but then they are really having to move a lot.  Notice that they use only a few sounds throughout the entire piece.  Oh how fun this is.  Talk about audience engagement.  I think this kind of treatment would be a grand addition to a concert that has more serious or solemn sounds as well.  What do you think?
