"The Band Concert" is a 1935 American animated short film produced in 3-strip Technicolor by Walt Disney Productions and released by United Artists. The story is about a small music band conducted by Mickey Mouse which struggles through a distraction-filled public performance. Donald Duck appears rolling a vendor cart through the audience selling lemonade, ice cream and popcorn.
Donald's voice disturbs Mickey as he can be heard over the music. Donald then pulls out a small flute and hops up on stage uninvited. As the band is still playing the "Finale" segment, Donald begins playing "Turkey in the Straw" at the same tempo as the band. The entire band, seemingly unaware of themselves, begin to play Donald's song instead of the prepared music. Mickey angrily breaks Donald's flute, but he then produces another from his clothing. This continues for a while until it is discovered that Donald is carrying dozens of hidden flutes, some of which he seems to pull from thin air.
After Donald has been kicked off stage, a bee comes along and harasses him. Donald fights the bee off and it goes on to bother the already-agitated Mickey. Mickey's swatting of the bee is taken as a cue from the orchestra. Donald later throws ice cream at the bee which hits Mickey, instead. As Mickey plays Ranz des Vaches, Horace Horsecollar tries to kill the bee with a hammer but hits Goofy on the head, driving his head down into his jacket, but he continues playing his clarinet from inside it.
Finally, the band comes to the "Storm" segment of the overture which summons an actual tornado, prompting the audience, the seats, and Donald to run for their lives. The tornado sucks up everything in its path, even the pavilion on which the band is playing. The band is so used to distractions by this point that they continue to play from inside the tornado, in which Mickey floats past the remains of a wrecked house. As the storm passes, the band, except Horace and Mickey, is thrown into a tree and the overture comes to its natural conclusion. Yet by this time the only remaining audience member is Donald Duck who applauds enthusiastically. He then produces one last flute and plays "Turkey in the Straw" again, but the band members throw their instruments at him in disgust.
