The Impossible Will Take a Little While is a song cycle for Mezzo-Soprano, three ensemble voices (Soprano, Tenor, Bass/Baritone), and a chamber orchestra (Highline) comprised of traditional acoustic and electronic instruments. The work is based on poetry from the collection of essays of the same title compiled and edited by Paul Rogat Loeb. It aims to highlight how political success is not achieved through heroic, iconic moments, but rather the small actions of many, many people. These acts mobilize and give hope to others, which is the ultimate tale of political power through democratic principles.
