John Williams Composes New Red Sox Song ‘Fanfare for Fenway’ With Help From Boston Pops Orchestra

A new song for the Boston Red Sox has been released. 

John Williams, a renowned composer and Red Sox fan, composed and conducted a song to embody and honor the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park in 2012. The song is called "Fanfare for Fenway."

The Boston Pops Orchestra performed a recording on Saturday, March 24 at Boston's Symphony Hall. The track is about three minutes in length.

Williams has created medleys to go along with the 2005 and 2008 Opening Day ceremony videos that honored World Series-winning teams. He also composed "Hymn to New England," which was performed by the Boston Pops Brass Ensemble while the 2007 banner was raised in 2008.

In 2009, the Boston Pops Orchestra released "The Red Sox Album," produced in conjunction with the Boston Red Sox and Major League Baseball.
