“Weird Al” Yankovic Conducts the Jr. Philharmonic

“Weird Al”, like a living cartoon, conducts the Jr. Philharmonic Orchestra of California at the 54th annual “Battle of Batons” on May 29, 1991. I think many more people would go to the symphony if “Weird Al” was a regular conductor.

    What’s amusing is that Weird Al is probably, for all his pop-cultural whackness, more knowledgeable about classical music than many in the audience.
