This sweetly sentimental lullaby will be highly nostalgic for many students and listeners who are fans of the hit animated show "Adventure Time." The arrangement features a soprano/alto solo, a brief vocal improv section and very singable ensemble parts, and it will give your group a chance to work on using contrasting tones, from light and airy at times to full and warm. The keyboard part may be played on piano, or else you may look for a synthesizer or rhodes keyboard sound to create the type of magical ambiance the arrangement seeks to evoke. This chart does not utilize percussion for artistic reasons, however a drummer could easily listen carefully and play colors and textures on cymbals to good effect if the director prefers.
