At a Glance

With its enchanting story and memorable songs, “The Wizard of Oz” has become a cherished tradition in millions of households. The film’s groundbreaking score is considered one of the masterpieces in film music history. In addition to “Over the Rainbow,” songwriters Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg and musical director Herbert Stothart added character songs, instrumental motifs using traditional folk and classical melodies, and even a miniature operetta, all of which combined to elevate the art of the film score to new heights. In this hour, follow, follow, follow along as we examine all of the musical elements in Oz, brick by brick (yellow, that is).
