John Williams Theme for the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games!

Be ready to be inspired!  John Williams wrote music for several Olympic Games.  This is particularly moving when viewed with the pageantry of the opening ceremonies of the Olympics!  Williams wrote this work on commission from the Atlanta Olympic Organizing Committee for the games to be held in that city in 1996. That year marked the hundredth anniversary of the first modern Olympic Games, revived by Baron de Coubertin in Athens in 1896. Therefore, from the outset this was to be more than an average "Olympic Theme."
