Wow!! :-0

I think my 5th grade band (back in the late Pre-Cambrian Era) was better than that!!

I'm sure we'd all sound like that if told to play the Anthem of whatever country after being given the instruments a day or two before.  :-0

Can't quite see what the lineup is but it appears to be just saxes and trumpets.

This is what happens when you don't book trombonists, kids.

In other news, Professor Harold Hill was arrested in Uganda for attempting to sell a large number of assault rifles which he claims he got in trade for marching band instruments in Libya.

My high school band played a medley of national anthem excerpts every Armistice Day. I liked the old Italian anthem; it was very fanfare-esque. The part we played starts at 0:31 in that ogg file.
