Program Notes

Appearing as the grand marshal for the storied Rose Parade (and conductor of the pre-game ceremony) in January 2004, John Williams penned this dramatic and distinctive setting to be premiered under his baton. Featuring fanfare-like extensions, this powerful and unique arrangement of our national anthem is certain to take its place as one of the most “in demand” versions available.
