  • Description

    (Pathetone main titles.)
    Full titles read: "Enthusiasts! - A new musical development." (new title) "Less than three years ago the Westminster City School started a School Orchestra with six violins and a piano. Today - a full orchestra of 45 has grown from that small nucleus -".

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    Various shots show members of the Westminster City School Orchestra playing the beginning of 'Pomp and Circumstance'. They seem to be all boys but there is a girl playing the violin in the foreground. Intertitle tells us that the youngest member of the orchestra is 11 years old.
