Following the Baltimore Ravens' Super Bowl win on Sunday, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) continues Ravens fever around Charm City and across the U.S. Since its posting on January 30, the BSO’s Ravens-themed YouTube video Hail to the Ravens! has gained more than 44,500 views and is garnering major media attention, including coverage on ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, ESPN’s SportsCenter, The Washington Post sports blog and NPR’s Baltimore affiliate, WYPR.

As part of the #ClassicalSuperBowl wager with the San Francisco Symphony, BSO musicians and Baltimore-area singers performed an original song written by bassist Jonathan Jenson, set to the music of Toreador, en garde from Georges Bizet’s Carmen.

Hail to the Ravens!

Ravens fans all over Baltimore,
Have just a single goal:
To win the Super Bowl.
We'll watch them proudly,
We'll cheer them loudly,
And our loyal orchestra will cheer loudest of all!

Everyone in San Francisco too
Would surely sell their soul
To win the Super Bowl.
Two teams are gonna play,
One team goes all the way.
Sunday night we'll see who's going to rise, who's going to fall!

All of us here at the Symphony
Expect to see our team bring home the victory.
Here's to Q and number 52!
Ellerbe and Torrey Smith,
Joe Flacco, T. Sizzle, Haloti,
And Yanda!

Hail to the Ravens, hear the city roar,
Go Baltimore, go Baltimore!
When Ray Rice goes running with the ball, You can't stop him at all!
The team we're rooting for
Is bound to score
A win for Baltimore.

Hail to the Ravens, raise your glasses high,
Purple and black, We've got their back.
Reed and Pollard will be ready to attack,
Kruger will go for the sack.
The team we're rooting for
Is bound to score
A win for Baltimore!
