Fenway Park is getting a theme song.

In celebration of the venue’s 100th birthday, Oscar-winning composer John Williams has composed “Fanfare for Fenway,” a musical tribute to America’s Most Beloved Ballpark.

The piece, just over three minutes long, was recorded Saturday at Boston’s Symphony Hall by members of the Boston Pops — with Williams himself conducting.

The legendary composer, and passionate Sox fan, has strong connections with Fenway.

Williams' music was performed during the Opening Day ring ceremony in 2005, when the Red Sox celebrated their historic World Series win. His music was featured even more prominently three years later, when the team picked up rings for their 2007 victory.

This program aired on March 25, 2012. The audio for this program is not available.
