Our Mission

Artistic Passion. Social Purpose.

Harmony Project connects people across social divides through the arts, education, and volunteer community service.

Our Vision

Many People. One Community.

Working together, we are building a stronger, more inclusive community with a focus on developing a social infrastructure that unites the community for the common good.

Our History

Founded in 2009, Harmony Project began by inviting people who love to sing—even if they did not think their voice was good enough—to use their voice to be part of something greater than self. A combination of people who had not sung since high school, those who had never sung publicly outside of the car or shower, and professionally-trained vocalists joined together to create what Director David Brown says is “the sound of the community, if we all started singing together.”

100 people said yes, and the mission began.

There are no auditions. In Harmony Project, it is not about the quality of your voice. It is about how you use it.

There are no notes to read. In Harmony Project, the focus is on the lyrics of the song. We are storytellers.

There is no financial obligation to our volunteers. Every Harmony Project arts and education program is offered complimentary. Our concerts, community investors, foundations, public partners, and corporate contributors provide support for our mission, allowing every person who wishes to participate to do so, regardless of their resources.

Since 2009, thousands of people have participated in a Harmony Project program or performance, or by giving back in service to the collective neighborhood through community garden restoration, neighborhood cleanups, tree planting, public art mural installations, playground builds, and serving meals are just some of the ways our volunteers give back.
