Program Notes

This work was commissioned by Singing City for their Songbook in honor of their 75th Year Anniversary. They commissioned 24 composers to write works that resonate with Singing City’s mission and can be taken into community settings where they will be shared and taught, inviting everyone to join together in song. When We Listen is set to a poem by Susan Windle. The piece speaks to our need for connection and what is possible in humanity when truly we listen to one another – a timeless and timely message. The composer extends her gratitude to the Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity for time and space to create this work.
