High school bands

Never heard the overture of Les Pêcheurs de Perles?

I don't suggest you start by the following video, where the execution is amateurish as well as the conduction, but at least these teenagers will have discovered this piece (sounds a lot like a Sicilian marcia funebre at times, doesn't it?).

Although truth be told, it doesn't really resemble Bizet's score.
