Saturday Morning Cartoons: Celebrating Graduation Season

Saturday, June 09, 2012

With the graduation season upon us, we turn to Edward Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 in D Major for this Saturday’s cartoon.

This piece (along with some of the other Pomp and Circumstance marches) was used in a segment from Disney's "Fantasia 2000," in which Donald Duck oversees a parade of animal pairs boarding Noah’s Ark. The piece is performed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by James Levine.
