​​High School All-Stars: Vocalist Interviews

​Zimmer was an excellent choice for bringing Soskin's words to performance.  Between the clarity of her diction and her solid sense of pitch, the attentive listener could relish the full impact of every phrase in Soskin's text.  Her delivery was judiciously seasoned with improvised vocalizations that reflected the poignancy of the text, particularly in its expression of frustration.  Soskin was skillful in keeping the anger under control; and, in doing so, she left that intensity to be filled in by any listener paying close attention to her words.
