• Short Summary

    American high school band win International Band Festival in Holland in pouring rain.

  • Description

    Titles read: "HOLLAND - MUSIC WITH RAIN".

    Netherlands.

    Various shots of marching bands walking along a street in the pouring rain, playing their instruments at the World Music Competition (aka International Band Festival). A crowd watches from beneath their umbrellas.

    We see the Koninklijke Harmonie 'Vermaack Na Arbeid' band from Turnhout, Belgium, the Volksmusikverein 'Hansa' band from Giesen in Germany and the Clifton High School Mustangs from the United States of America. The latter are the clear winners, with a snazzy tune, pretty majorettes and that famous all-American showmanship.

    Final shot shows a Mustang tuba (?) player emptying rain from the bell of his instrument.

    I do not have this issue with other clips. Is the link faulty at your end?
