Uprising (Muse Cover) with Bach's Toccata & Fugue - from Classical Blast


"We took part in a streamed live concert at The Arcada Theater in St Charles, prior to the Illinois state lockdown. The theater was closed, except for  handful of crew members. This was our finale, a combination of “Uprising" by the band, Muse, mashed with Bach’s "Toccata & Fugue in D Minor." Stay safe, stay strong, and we WILL be victorious!"
