As victory traditions go, this one’s pretty good.
After the Chicago Blackhawks won their sixth Stanley Cup earlier this month and brought the Windy City yet another trophy parade, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra gave the wildly successful franchise yet another tribute this weekend.
Just like in 2013, CSO music director Riccardo Muti led the orchestra in a rousing rendition of The Fratellis’ “Chelsea Dagger,” most commonly known as the Blackhawks’ goal song.
It might not be as heart-pumping as the original, but this is a really, really awesome tribute to both the song and the Blackhawks.
Besides, who are we to criticize orchestra music of the highest quality?
