For two decades, the Trans-Siberan Orchestra has dazzled audiences with rock covers, and in recent years, we've been exposed to the masterful work of 2 Cellos. This inspired me to collect some of the coolest orchestra covers we've ever seen. Behold these impressive favorites!

 

While watching this performance, I came to the conclusion that Tool's progressive nature and wicked-cool time signature changes must be an orchestra's creative dream come true. Metamorphestra CRUSHES 'Schism'!

 

You probably remember the Louisville Leopard Percussionists making headlines with their version of Led Zeppelin's 'Kashmir', most notably for the fact that they are all CHILDREN! Way to go, parents! 

 

I was absolutely blown away by 'The Final Countdown' performed by Liepāja Symphony Orchestra and Melo-M. Europe must've been STOKED to see this.

 

What song do YOU think would be a next-level challenge for an orchestra?

 

Happy  Rocking,
