Husband And Wife Duo Join String Quartet For 'Bohemian Rhapsody' Cover

Brooklyn Duo, a husband and wife team from New York, perform a unique rendition of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ using a cello, a piano and full string quartet.


This iconic song was written by Freddie Mercury for Queen’s 1975 album, ‘A Night At The Opera.’ Since that time, many famous artists have lent their vocals to the tune. Decades later, it is still a popular song for covers and auditions.

“Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go
A little high, little low
Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me”

Marnie and Patrick Laird are a talented husband and wife team with deep musical roots. Both Marnie and Patrick are classically trained musicians who met while attending a Chamber Music Festival in 2006.

Over the years, they have risen in Internet fame for their stunning classical crossovers. Known by their stage name, Brooklyn Duo, these two have garnered millions of views for their viral performances including stunning renditions of ‘The Sound Of Silence’ and ‘Hallelujah.’

Now, they are enlisting the help of the Dover Quartet for a special performance of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody.’

This is not an easy song to cover, especially with a classical ensemble but this talented group pulls it off seamlessly. What an incredible sound. Who else is ready to hear more covers from Brooklyn Duo?
