This cover is the bridge between a popular animated film (that you may have heard of) and music made with “instruments” found in the kitchen – one of our favorite DIY activities. This is Let It Go performed with wine glasses, pots, pans, and a gallon of milk by YouTuber Dan Newbie.

Related watching: this kid-filled Depeche Mode cover, this glass harp Leonard Cohen cover, Beethoven’s Ninth on a Toolbox Glockenspiel, this musical kettle, and a handbell rendition of “Married Life” from Pixar’s UP.

Carnegie Hall’s Ensemble ACJW performs a medley of 43 Cartoon Theme Songs. Who doesn’t love watching music being performed as animated action happens all over the place? After you’ve watched, check your guesses against the song list in the notes on the video’s YouTube page.

And if you liked that, you’ll likely enjoy these two videos: Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France performs Le Carnaval des Animaux and the John Wilson Orchestra plays Scott Bradley’s Tom and Jerry cartoon music.

Every year, regardless of weather, the Westerly Morris Men celebrate the vernal equinox and the first day of spring with a pre-dawn hike up to the summit of Lantern Hill in North Stonington, Connecticut. There, they sing and dance to help the sun come up.

The hike and celebration is a 28 year tradition for this particular dance team, as captured above in 2012, but Morris dance, a form of English folk dance, dates back as early as 1448.

Watch a few more traditions, including our favorite spring tradition: this MGM Happy Harmonies cartoon from 1936, To Spring.

With LEDs, lasers, a “light bow” and special lighting surrounding her, violonist Janine Jansen plays Violin Concerto in A Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach. Video by London’s DBLG, who used the lighting techniques to visualize the passion and energy of Jansen’s performance.

In the archives: more violin videos, and one of our favorite music videos with “laser" action: Birds from Pleix.
