Written for the Brooklyn Youth Chorus. Performed by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus Men’s Ensemble, March 8 and 10, 2018, Manhattan
Part of the Project: Encore contemporary choral music catalog
After a politically difficult 2016 and 2017, I wanted to write a piece to express both the dismay and loss I felt, as well as the reasons I continued to persist and fight for what I believed in. I felt that these feelings were felt very strongly by many after the 2016 elections, and wanted to express them through lyrics and song.
