Music awry in 2022.

Dear Readers and Friends,
When people talk about 2022 in the future, what will they remember? 
Undoubtedly, we will speak of the millions of people across the world displaced from their homes due to violence—and the hope that music can bring in moments of loss. We will remember our growing struggle with global heat—and the local artists creating cooling murals in the hottest neighborhoods. When we talk about schools becoming sites of fear and censorship, we can still find joy in the actors bringing a Philadelphia elementary school to life on Hulu.
Ask any artist, and they will tell you that the greatest art often comes from a place of uncertainty. Artists are at work around the world every day, creating moments of hope and beauty for their communities—even when the odds are stacked against them. You’re receiving this message because you have already experienced the generous work of an artist,and have been inspired to invest in their creative journey.
We’re here to thank many of you for your previous donation to Arts PRunlimited, Inc.,and invite you to join us again in supporting their mission. Your gift is an investment in the power of art, and its ability to spark conversations, question systems, and fill a room with laughter. Today, we are asking you to bring your momentum to their project by donating again before the end of the year. 
If you are able, please consider giving again at the link below. If you aren’t already, you can also become a monthly supporter of Arts PRunlimited, Inc. and help sustain their work all year round.   Thank you for your generosity. From everyone at Fractured Atlas, we wish you a happy, healthy, and safe holiday season.

Dear Colleagues, 

I urge you to move the Symphony to end the first half of the Program, as it gets upstaged by the Ravel. There it would get a better perspective, and have a greater impact after the Beethoven or Mozart.

Newark, Italy and me (
Before the Pandemic, I had begun some work to use some of the Narrative Historyas a short film. There are sights I had chosen to film in some cases before they were demolished. This included the Columbus Monument on Broad St. that was demolished by the City of Newark in 2022.
We are beginning a campaign to raise money with these 2 Film Freeway selections that add greater momentum.My Antonio Caruso/Tuosto Family in 1925 in The Newark Sunday Call. My Great-Grandparents and other relatives are all there in 1925. Antonio also donated a window to St. Lucy’s Church dedicated to his Mother as they were from Capo Selle in the Province of Avellino outside Naples, Italy. They were all devoted to St Gerard and that legacy remains even today at St Lucy’s Church to the right of the altar above the door to the Sacristy even today after 97 years.Newark, Italy + Daniel P Quinn,View this Author’s SpotlightPreview on

Numbers are a useless abstract comparison run rampant in America. Professional, people can be apI , inept, caring or incompetent at ANY age. As MLK once said, it is ALL important the content of their character and contributions to society. I remember how at 17, I blurted out to my cousin that he was OLD at 29. Recently, I just crossed a numerical line but rarely if ever, do I mention my number… My cousin in now 81 and we are both still here.

What happened in November, 1963 ?

November 22, 1963/2022
JFK was assassinated when I was a child in grammar school in 1963. We take note of this event in 2022, barely remembered in our time.
As children, we were all asked to contribute for this monument in Newark, NJ.
Taken for granted now it remains in Military Park on Broad St. (Photo)We were dismissed from school after we heard the news. In a conversation I said:“I bet the Russians are laughing their heads off” that day in 1963.JFK Memorial (1965) in Military Park, downtown Newark, NJ.

My Bravo made The NYTimes:After the conclusion of the 15th fugue, someone in the audience let out an admiring, brisk “bravo.” Then more applause rippled out from the Carnegie crowd, which up until then had been respectfully silent. There was pleasant laughter — and then even more forceful applause, which Levit gratefully acknowledged before continuing. This truly spontaneous ovation was another reminder of Levit’s power as a musician: He turned a moment of atonal imitation into the pinnacle of the evening.

Odds and ends.

Joe Biden has made inroads in this miasma, but djt screams louder and lies to make people feel better. He is the jim jones of our time—-with all the unvaccinated people who took trumps macabre advice and died in ICUS across the country. Djt is demonic, deranged and in “mad mode.”. America suffers with all his venom and the Republicans ARE at fault for ignorance, insolence and belligerence, as the USA falter, except for the very rich who are all making a killing, day after dayView your commentIf you’re having trouble viewing your comment, please copy and paste this link in your browser:

Rutgers University School of Business offered me a partial scholarship, only a few years ago, in Ethics. This article both as an overall appraisal of the revolving doors culture in DC for the elite would make Lincoln cringe. And myself. The disorganized attack on the capital was filled by rage, from the dissolute nefarious mouth of trump.
My Certificate in Ethics is posted on my refrigerator near my MA in Performing Arts from The American University. My whole career has careened between some support and too little or none from my other people and foundations. Where is fairness and any shred of ethical behavior by these lawyers and lobbyists.

Newark, Italy + Me. by Daniel P Quinn (Author)
Top review from the United States
Truby Chiaviello5.0 out of 5 stars Heartfelt Tribute to NewarkReviewed in the United States on August 30, 2021
To know Newark is to love Newark. That might be one way to sum up the heartfelt tribute Daniel P. Quinn has made to his beloved city in his new insightful book, “Newark, Italy + Me.”
The city was a manufacturing hub and the author’s maternal side, the Carusos, came to work in the factories there. The author sees himself, “As an Irish-Italian I am a bridge between both cultures.” While working in Italy at LaScala, “a stagehand asked me if I was ‘Irish’. Startled, I said I was Irish American and Italo-American never realizing I could be looked upon as Irish.” Quinn is not unlike other longtime residents of Newark. He retains great pride in the city while acknowledging its slow resurrection from the terrible 1967 riots. He laments the fate of a minor league baseball stadium, built 20 years ago, in the hopes of rebounding downtown. “The almost new Bears Stadum is due for demolition! Newark keeps coming back and going sideways as well.”Such are the ups and downs of many old cities in America. Right when you think the path ahead is to embrace a bright future, a change in municipal leadership arises to set things back many years.
Quinn loves Newark not just for a sentimental attachment to his hometown. The city is rich in history and culture. He shares with readers how the city was founded when the “Puritans arrived first to found Newark…after the great 1666 fire in London…Newark was named Newark-on-Trent in England.”
Quinn knows the background of city streets, wards and key landmarks. He conveys how ethnic neighborhoods may change over time in Newark.He writes: “St. Lucy’s Church has sponsored the Feast of St. Gerard in October every year since the 1890s. They have done so through the rise, fall and demolition of the Italian neighborhood. More recently, St. Lucy’s also saw the rise and fall of the adjacent Columbus homes (1950-2000). Now run by the Comboni Fathers (who left Montclair for Newark) are welcoming a new generation of Hispanic and Haitian immigrants.”
The author’s tone, no doubt, is one of support for Newark’s ultimate rebound. As he mixes poems and essays, he is rooting for Newark to reclaim its unofficial title as America’s most dynamic city. “Newark, Italy + Me” is a tribute worthy of reading for all Italian Americans of New Jersey and of all over America.
