Lyrics by Elizabeth Alexander, with students from Waunakee Middle School.

An atmospheric and energetic two-movement work about the thrill and impatience of growing up. Its lyric, comprised of verbs suggesting stages of growth, creates a progression from "waiting, watching, wondering" to "doing, daring, flying!" An optional vibraphone part lends more color to this unique youth choir showpiece.
Commissioned by Waunakee Middle School (Waunakee, WI) Range: Soprano: c' -g" , Soprano II: c' -d" , Alto: g-b'

Text: I. When? When? When? Stretching, seeking, slumbering... What a world of shapes and colors, gentle hands and lullabies. Crawling, reaching... Will there be a time to use my eager arms and open eyes? Waiting, watching, wondering... When? When? When? II. Now! Now! Now! Now! Sailing, soaring, running, racing, Speeding, sporting, cheering, chasing, Shouting, sharing, doing, daring - No more wondering when! Working, wishing, dreaming, dancing, Reaching, risking, choosing, chancing, Growing, giving, learning, living - No more wondering when! Trusting... Trying... Loving... Crying... Sailing, soaring, running, racing, Speeding, sporting, cheering, chasing, Shouting, sharing, doing, daring - flying! Now! Straightaway! At once! No delay! It's now or never, here and now, Without hesitation the moment to live...is Now! Copyright 1992 by Elizabeth Alexander. Reprinted by permission.
