“In our current commercial and popular culture, there may be no other rhapsody considered more celebrated than Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ ” Sung Jin Hong, artistic director and conductor of One World Symphony, told GO Brooklyn. And on March 9, the Ditmas Park-based conductor will lead his orchestra in a performance of the song, as well as rhapsodies by Rachmaninoff, Brahms and Donizetti in “Rhapsody: Metal vs. Classical.”

To more fully capture the sound that Queen created, Sung is employing the vocal group The Fault Line (pictured).

For some orchestras, this might be a real stretch, but for One World, it’s just an extension of the classical tradition.

Said  Hong, “The daredevil virtuosos Paganini and Liszt were considered rock stars and celebrities”
