    About the musicians

    Founded in 2015, The Dream Unfinished (TDU) is an activist orchestra, whose mission is to use classical music as a platform to engage audiences in dialogues surrounding social and racial justice. Past seasons have centered on police brutality, the #SayHerName movement, and the school to prison pipeline. The Dream Unfinished is an orchestra that looks and sounds like New York City, and through music, explores pressing issues which are affecting our communities. 

    Contemporaneous is an ensemble of 21 musicians whose mission is to bring to life the music of now. Recently recognized for a “ferocious, focused performance” (The New York Times) and for its “passionate drive...setting an extremely high bar for other ensembles to live up to” (I Care If You Listen), Contemporaneous performs and promotes the most exciting work of living composers through innovative concerts, commissions, recordings, and educational programs.


    The Dream Unfinished is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of The Dream Unfinished must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
