What I Needed to Hear

For: SATB a capella

Duration: 5 minutes

Text: The 2023 UConn Concert Choir, arranged by Sarah Ann Marze

Program Note: I will never forget the trust and faith the UConn Concert Choir had in me to compile their thoughts on the mental health crisis into a new piece, “What I Needed to Hear.” A simple yet meaningful text by us, for us. This piece is far from all sunshine and roses, but rather leaves us open-minded, ready to receive positive affirmations and ready to turn into our community.

  Listen to me: 

  I know it’s real.

  I hear you,

  I love you,

  Go easy.
