The Five-Week Summer Performance Program at Berklee College of Music takes place every summer, with jams, open mics, and student performances galore. The renowned program brings students together from all over the world to celebrate music and study their instruments together. Last summer, the string department had a special piece to deliver to audiences, performing a striking rendition of “Whipping Post” by the Allman Brothers Band, which was directed and arranged by Berklee’s own Mimi Rabson. Of course, the Allman Brothers Band cover served as a tribute to founding members Butch Trucks and Gregg Allman, who both passed away earlier in the year. The Five-Week string orchestra’s selection seems to have resonated with fans of the Allman Brothers, as it quickly made its rounds through the Internet. Their unique interpretation of the 1969 Live At Fillmore East classic is awe-inspiring, with the expert cohort of young musicians doing justice to the challenging number and its orchestral arrangement.You can watch the Five-Week String Orchestra interpretation of the Allman Brothers Band’s “Whipping Post” below.
