Music by Stephen Schwartz

Arranged By Jim DePriest

Pippin is a 1972 musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz that tells the story of a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure in his life. The songs are very familiar again thanks to a revival on Broadway in 2013.  The show consists of 3 of most popular tunes from the show: Magic To Do, Morning Glow and the finale from the show. Circus themes work great for this show since it is presented as a three ring circus on stage.  The music is as fun to play as it is to listen to and you'll be humming it all season long. The show's motto speaks to kids as they reach for excellence

About Licensing

Before I can deliver an arrangement you are required to obtain “permission to license” from the copyright holder using a site like TRESONA MUSIC or reaching out directly to the copyright holder.  Some arrangements take days or even weeks to license (and others are simply declined by the copyright holder). For your convenience, I've indicated arrangements (with a      ) I believe will license quickly (but not guaranteed) and a green check       if it lists on TRESONA as pre-approved. All the music listed at one time has been approved for arranging.  The cost of licensing a song is typically between $180 to $350 but some can be much more.  The cost of licensing is not included in the price of the arrangement and is the responsibility of the purchaser.
