"the pride of Boston and the epitome of our culture"

The Waynesboro Symphony Orchestra is playing a version of this arrangement, with strings, at our concert Friday night. Everyone's shocked at how "dissonant" it is. (Search for the word "dissonant" on John Williams' Wikipedia page.) I've been saying "good for him!" to as many people as I can. I'm really tired of the E.T., JFK, Schindler's List, and 1941 Williams' pieces we're playing. The Morton Gould one has grown on me.
