Hundreds Of Students Use Body Percussion Perform Beethoven's Fifth

Watch hundreds of students perform Beethoven’s Fifth using only body percussion - it’s incredibly in-sync!

During the COVID-19 pandemic, normal activities stopped for almost everyone — especially for kids in school. Since singing might’ve increased the spread of germs, this choral director had to come up with another way to give her students a musical experience.

Saint-Michel-Garicoïts de cambo school, a middle school in France, is home to a very creative music teacher. Her kids probably don’t even realize how lucky they are to have her!

Nelly Guilhemsans, the music teacher, transformed the classical score into something entirely new. And this isn’t the first time she’s done something out of the box. She has organized a flash mob filled with music (pre-pandemic) and a fun dance routine.

People everywhere have watch the video of the performance over 750,000 times on Youtube. So it’s definitely worth your time!

You’ll immediately recognize the classical tune, whether you could name it or not. At the beginning, you can see the talented Nelly in between a couple of students. She performed with them! And you might notice another adult swinging his arms around in the background. She had someone dress as Beethoven to conduct!

Through a bunch of different combinations of claps, slaps, snaps, and stomps, the kids came together for an entrancing performance (while wearing masks, of course). It’s incredible how well each movement goes along with the music!

The students rehearsed the movements everyday for 5 months. Their dedication is inspiring! And the best part has to be the shots from above. It just looks so cool.

God bless Nelly and all of the teachers around the world trying to make the best of these unfortunate circumstances. Your effort does not go unnoticed. Each and every one of you is appreciated.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Psalm 37:3
