The elementary school children played on even when their backing track cut out.
A group of schoolchildren performed a concert of Star Wars music at a Quebec City cinema just a week after their school, Ecole de L’Harmonie, was forced to close because of a fire.
The children, playing the Star Wars theme using lightsaber violin bows made by their excellent music teacher Philippe Amyot, were completely unruffled when the backing track suddenly cut out due to a problem with the CD player. Later, even the presence of Darth Vader and a stormtrooper didn't break their concentration while performing the Imperial March.
