Broken Orchestra is a 501(c)(3) founded in 2019 to carry on the work of Symphony For A Broken Orchestra, an initiative of Temple Contemporary at Temple University in Philadelphia.


Pullitzer Prize-winner David Lang was commissioned to write a composition for broken school instruments collected from the Philadelphia School System. 400 professional and student musicians performed the piece before more than 1,000 instruments were repaired and returned to the district.


We are currently working to bring this initiative to more school districts across the country. If you would like to receive updates about this effort, please subscribe below or contact
