Back in 2016, we showed you Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” played on a 1905 fair organ. But now we’re taking it up a notch and letting you see this: organist Joshua Stafford performing the same Queen classic on a Midmer-Losh organ. Built with 33,112 pipes, it is apparently “the largest organ ever made, the largest musical instrument ever constructed, and the loudest musical instrument ever made.” You can find it at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. Enjoy.
