Title: Choeur des Gamins (Chorus of the Street Children) from the opera Carmen
Composer: Georges Bizet, arr. David Gable

Note: This playful march appears early in Act I of Carmen, bringing a bit of lightness to an otherwise tragic tale. Sometimes referred to as the Military March, it is sung by a group of children pretending to be soldiers of the guard.
