Graduation Playlist


May 06, 2021

Some schools are holding in-person graduation ceremonies this spring, but we know that for a lot of students the experience isn’t going to be the same as in past years. We can't present the actual event or the diploma for this year's virtual graduates, but we sure can provide the music. Enjoy this playlist including the graduation ceremony standard, Edward Elgar's Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1, and other great ceremonial works ideal for your at-home celebration.


Procession of the Nobles — Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov

Orb and Sceptre — William Walton

Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 — Edward Elgar

Academic Festival Overture — Johannes Brahms
