Composer Peter Boyer
Lyricist Lynn Ahrens
Conductor Keith Lockhart and The Boston Pops Orchestra
Tanglewood Festival Chorus

The Dream Lives On pays tribute to the call to public service, drive for social change, the legacy of optimism for America's future, and the spirit epitomized by the Kennedy brothers. Written by Boyer and lyricist Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime), the work combines quotes from speeches by the Kennedy brothers, original text and video, with Boyer's dramatic orchestral-choral score. The title of the work was taken from the closing lines of Ted Kennedy's speech at the 2008 Democratic National Convention: "If we set our compass true, we will reach our destination... The work begins anew. The hope rises again. And the dream lives on."
