A trombone player, no longer able to play his instrument due to illness, is demoted to playing the cymbals. Throughout band practice, our larger-than-life protagonist — personified by renowned Flemish actor and singer Wim Opbrouck — terrorizes fellow band members of Toronto's own Weston Silver Band, confides in the audience, sings arias and dances an unlikely ballet duet, all with exuberance and a riotous slapstick edge.

A glorious sense of chaos.
