The Dream Unfinished's Fundraiser:

The Dream Unfinished: A Symphonic Benefit For Civil Rights

The Dream's Photo

BENEFITING: BEATS RHYMES AND RELIEF

ORGANIZER: BEATS RHYMES AND RELIEF

EVENT DATE: Jul 17, 2015

The Dream Unfinished

THE STORY:

The Dream Unfinished is a gathering of orchestral musicians, and nationally prominent artists and figures, who will join the chorus of calls for civil rights, social justice, and an end to systemic racism. Fiscally sponsored by Beats, Rhymes, & Relief, proceeds will go to the Center for Constitutional Rights, Justice League NYC, the National Coalition of Law Enforcement Officers for Justice, and MusicKitchen-Food for the Soul. The concert will be held at the Salvation Army's Centennial Memorial Temple, located at 120 West 14th Street, and take place on July 17, a year following the death of Eric Garner, who was one in a string of deaths of unarmed African-American men which exploded onto the news in 2014.

With an orchestra comprised of musicians from every borough of New York, led by dynamic conductor James Blachly, we intend the concert to be a space for people of all backgrounds to gather, to show that this systemic discrimination of black lives matters to people of all colors and classes.

Featuring the music of William Grant Still, Leonard Bernstein, and a world premiere by Jessie Montgomery.

The title of our concert comes from Plain-Chant for America, a poem written by Katherine Garrison Chapin Biddle and orchestrated by African-American composer William Grant Still. Plain-Chant for America opens with the text: 

For the dream unfinished out of which we came
We stand together.


It is for this dream that we have assembled. As we raise our collective voice in support of those who have been silenced or ignored; through music, we hope to inspire others to continue working towards a dream fulfilled.
