This composition is the First Place Winner of our 2020-2021 Rachel Moore Composition Contest. “Breathe" is the product of humanity during a time of disconnection and isolation.

During this time, and the many times in our lives that have felt or will inevitably feel similarly, we came to understand just how crucial it was to keep meaningful, honest relationships alive. May this piece remind us all how to sit alongside those swallowed in their own clouds of worry, and breathe.
