What song plays over the closing credits in the last episode of The Simpsons?

It's season 21, episode 6, "Pranks and Greens," guest-starring Jonah Hill. The song starts around 20:47 here. We thought maybe it was Holst, Vaughan Williams, or Gilbert & Sullivan, but can't identify it. I don't see any mention of it in the closing credits or in the googles.

It's the troika from the Lieutenant Kije suite by Prokofiev.

mllrstv got it - it was Troika. I can think of about 4 times I've played this in various band programs through my instrumental career, so it was quite the trip to hear it throughout the episode.
