Riverdance - Brass Band OÖ

I basically grew up in a wind band. From age 5 till age 16, and a short while as a student at the university, I played percussion, then the French horn, and later the trumpet. My brother played as well, our father has played in wind orchestras for more than 60 years, and he has also arranged many pieces (and written a march or two) and directed orchestras, although he is not a professional. What you see and hear in this video is the kind of music that I heard almost daily as a child, though technically our orchestra was not a brass band. The performance, by this Austrian brass band, of music from Riverdance is really impressive.
