Two more British composers are included with Elgar's "Nimrod" from "Enigma Variations" and a medley of tunes from Handel's "Fireworks Music." "Bugler's Holiday" by Leroy Anderson features the trumpet section. The program concludes with the traditional "Stars and Stripes Forever" by John Philip Sousa.
