Rocky, Harry Potter, Chicago, and Titanic are on the program as well as classical music by Rossini ("William Tell" overture), and a medley of Ray Charles hits. Appearing to perform "Danny Boy" with conductor Sam Szor and the Toledo Concert Band will be Joel Tse, principal flutist of the Toledo Symphony.
