    Without a doubt BYU!! And I am not LDS (or LSD … well …). The Univ. of North Florida did not demonstrate any really tight ensemble playing in the clip. Not saying that they can’t do it, it just wasn’t demonstrated. I would give the flugelhorn player from Florida an outstanding musician award. Say what you will about the mormons; but, they are disciplined and tight!!
