This work is dedicated to the memory of Robert F. Kennedy. In 2007 I was commissioned by the City of San Jose to write a work for 2 choruses to commemorate a speech Robert F. Kennedy made in San Jose in 1968. I used a part of one of his speeches for the text of the chorus, then wrote my own text for the verses. His great quote is, "There are those who see the world the way it is, and ask why - I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?"
This performance was at the San Jose Rotunda. The groups are: Vivace Youth Chorus directed by Peggy Spool, and the San Jose Symphonic Choir
