  1. This is wonderful! Thank you!

  2. Definitely NOT a band but an orchestra; as stated in the list of performers.

    I noticed that every one was at least a sergeant. The only officer being the conductor, I think may have been a colonel. I wonder why they are all given that ranking?

    I must admit that I found it a bit tedious; the music didn’t seem that melodious to me, and the singing seemed restrained.

    Americans usually perform with much more gusto and life; I was disappointed.

    But then I’m a grumpy old man as we all well know !
