Olympic Fanfare

Feeling musically inspired by the Olympics and can't get enough of the music? We have lead sheets and streaming audio of "Bugler's Dream" by Leo Arnaud, the formal name of the Olympic fanfare. Despite its ubiquity on NBC's coverage of the event, it is not an international theme song. ABC started using it in the late 1960s, and it is so firmly associated with the Olympics in American minds that NBC continued the tradition.

The lead sheet is in The Best Fake Book Ever [MP1630.28 .B478], available for C, Bb, and Eb instruments.

The streaming audio track is on an album of Arnaud's works.
