HARMONY PROGRAM 2014 GALA
At the Harmony Program, we believe that music should be an integral part of every child’s education and that great expectations lead to even greater achievement. Toward that end, we provide students in economically underprivileged communities with free instruments, comprehensive instrumental musical instruction, orchestral training, and access to a variety of cultural experiences, all in an effort to promote self-confidence, creativity, social development and academic achievement.
Our annual gala brings together our students, supporters, and music enthusiasts from around the city for a celebration of music. This year we are thrilled to be honoring Grammy Award winning violinist, Joshua Bell, for his outstanding musicianship and his efforts to support and promote music education opportunities. The evening will be hosted by John Merrow of the PBS NewsHour and will feature VIP cocktails, seated dinner with live music by the Park Avenue Chamber Symphony, and a featured performance by our very own Harmony Program students.

130 Bowery, New York City
Over the past decade, I have been committed to expanding access to music making opportunities for the children of New York City. My work has been guided by two beliefs: a belief in music’s unique capacity to engage and inspire young people, and a belief that the city’s vast cultural and educational resources can be creatively leveraged to make music instruction more broadly available.
The Harmony Program is the realization of those beliefs. Through partnerships with public schools, universities, social service organizations, and cultural institutions, we reach communities across the city, training young musicians to teach with us, building youth orchestras, and using music as a vehicle for developing in children the life skills they need to succeed, both on and off the stage.
Your support is critically important to our goal of bringing music and its many benefits into the lives of additional New York City children. We hope you will join us in our effort.
