This is unfortunately not the original orchestration, but I found it very entertaining!

Very cool video, thanks for sharing it Greg.

I liked the random guy in the audience at 4:18 or so with a french horn case on his back that wasn't part of the orchestra.

That is Mike Szasbo's orchestra from Copenhagen, I believe. It has been posted before here and he commented on it.

Trombone means big trumpet-does that mean it is louder?

We did play the full-length original piece on that day (twice), but it got cut down to 5 minutes for public consumption on YouTube. The orchestra has gotten more publicity out of that than we could imagine.  I've even had random family members emailing me months after the fact saying, "hey, I saw you on youtube!" 

The orchestra brought trucks up to the side entrance of the station and ran out the harp and timps on the day.  It was a very well-organized stunt.
