Toronto Symphony Orchestra - 1920's film

This short film, published by the Canadian Film Board in 1945, shows the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, apparently in the late 1920's. (The slightly noisy soundtrack that can be heard now and again would certainly suggest that this is a fairly early sound film, although it could be from the early 1930's; Sir Ernest MacMillan was conductor here from 1931-'56). The synchronisation needed a pretty big correction - after much trial and error, I discovered the audio was almost a full second behind the picture.

Titles read: "Practically all the great orchestras of the world are staffed by mere man - but to England belongs the proud distinction of having the World's finest women's orchestra. Today we are privileged to present the 80 performers of The British Women's Symphony Orchestra (Playing at the Queen's Hall, London)." London. Various shots of the British Women's Symphony Orchestra playing at Queen's Hall, conducted by Grace Burrows. They are playing an excerpt from 'Don Juan' by Strauss. A few men are seen among the women players. At the end of the piece the audience applauds as Grace Burrows takes a bow.
