The Harmony Program invites you to join us at our Spring Gala on March 14, 2019.
Harmony Program 2019 Gala
At the Harmony Program, music changes lives every day. Through collective music-making, children from underserved communities explore new avenues and realize their full potential. Our specially trained teachers guide students from beginner group instruction to orchestral performance, building life skills and community from a shared love of music.
Please join us at our 2019 Spring Gala as we present the Harmony Program Award and celebrate the talents of young classical musicians. This special evening will gather a lively group of music enthusiasts for a VIP cocktail reception, dinner, and, of course, plenty of live music… all in celebration of the vital role music plays in shaping our communities and our lives.
If you would like more information please email us at Gala@HarmonyProgram.org or call us at (646) 981-1882.
