Musical selections include a medley of movie hits by John Williams, a spirited Spanish march entitled “Amparito Roca,” Percy Grainger’s “Lincolnshire Posy,” Richard Strauss’s fanfare “Also Sprach Zaranthrustra” best known as the theme from “2001: A Space Odyssey,” and Appalachian themed selections “Kentucky 1800” and “Blue Ridge Reel.”
