Elementary School Bands’ ‘Jingle Bells’ Performance Descends Into Madness

This is an absolutely delightful video from 2009 starring the Bridle Path and Kulp Elementary Schools’ beginner and advanced bands performing ‘Jingle Bells’ at a Christmas concert in Lansdale, Pennsylvania with as much cacophony as their little fingers can muster. Things get really good once the whole band starts playing. And by really good I mean awful, and by awful I mean absolutely fantastic. I like how the parents start turning to each other and laughing, like they aren’t sure if they’re the only one that can hear this train wreck or if they just had a stroke. My biggest regret in life is not being in the audience that night.

Keep going for the video, but skip to 2:00 for the beginning of the performance, with the wheels quickly falling off at 2:30.
