  • Description

    (Main Pathetone titles.)

    Full titles read: "The Boys' Orchestra." (new title) "The start their musical studies early in Germany, and there are many young orchestras, especially in provincial towns. Here's a real one - -------." (orchestra is presumably named here, but is completely hidden by timecode.)

    Germany.

    Various shots of German children (seem to be all boys) playing in an orchestra; most play strings but a large crowd at the rear play harmonicas / mouth organs. They play a traditional German tune, and are performing in the open air, conducted by an old man.
