About the Event

Fotografiska New York will present the second annual Unfiltered Music Festival, featuring some of the most vital and accomplished names in contemporary classical music, inviting the audience to experience music in one of the most breathtaking spaces in New York City. Participating musicians include the four-time Grammy-winning, Chicago-based sextet Eighth Blackbird, three-time Grammy-nominated violinist and composer Curtis Stewart, and renowned pianist Jenny Lin. This year’s festival follows a successful inaugural event which took place in March 2022 and featured classical superstars including Caroline Shaw and Anthony McGill.

The festival builds upon Fotografiska’s mission to “inspire a more conscious world through the power of photography” by offering an immersive, multidisciplinary experience. The Loft space lifts these electrifying musical programs out of the traditional concert hall and sets them in a versatile event space with vaulted ceilings and skylights built in 1894. Since opening in Sweden in 2010, Fotografiska has become a haven of innovation, inclusivity and free expression.

The festival is co-curated by the Fotografiska New York programming staff and cellist Laura Metcalf.
