Who knew that the National Youth Orchestra of the USA was so fierce! 

Members of the prestigious youth group recently had a little fun between rehearsals at the State University of New York Purchase by filming a parody of "West Side Story" in the tunnels of the campus.

In the video, which was uploaded to YouTube, two rival violin "gangs" square off and play their hearts out before their instructor orders them back to practice.

The orchestra, which is performing Wednesday evening at the Performing Arts Center at the university, will be featured on NPR's "From the Top" with host Christopher O'Riley.
