The Impossible Will Take a Little While


The Impossible Will Take a Little While is a song cycle for mezzo-soprano, three ensemble voices (soprano, tenor, baritone), and a chamber orchestra comprised of traditional acoustic and electronic instruments by Eric Lemmon. The goal of the work is to celebrate the impact that ordinary people can achieve through small political acts. These acts mobilize and give hope to others, which is the ultimate tale of political power through democratic principles. The work does not expound upon a particular political issue or ideology, but aims to match the tenor of the texts it is based on –which describes that recognizing how political change in democratic society occurs is important to sustaining action in the face of systemic inertia. By melding this discursive idea to the emotional power of music, Eric’s desire is to offer the same inspiration he gained from the essays and poems in Loeb’s book.  

The Impossible Will Take a Little While has been written for Highline Chamber Ensemble, Kate Maroney, and three voices to be premiered September 8th, 2015 at 7:30PM at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music, Mary Flagler Cary Hall. The work is based on poetry from the collection of essays of the same title compiled and edited by Paul Rogat Loeb.
