Philarmonic Society of Corfu rehearsing Samara's "To the glorious homeland"

A short clip taken with my cameraphone from the band's rehearsal of 01 June 2010. They are playing a piece of an important corfiot composer, Spyros Samaras(1861-1917). It is called "Για την ένδοξη πατρίδα" (Το the glorious homeland) and it was a part from the operatta "Πόλεμος εν πολέμω" (War in war) composed in 1914, a year after the end of the Balkan wars.
The band will perfom it at a concert dedicated to the corfiot composers at the Athens Music Hall tomorrow.
