Harmony Project was formed in 2009 with the mission of building a stronger and more inclusive community through the arts and volunteer services.  From an initial chorus of 100 people who agreed to sing and serve in their community, the organization has grown:

  • over 1,000 people sing weekly
  • tens of thousands attend concerts and performances
  • programs serving differently-abled adults; men and women who have experienced homelessness; students from across the economic spectrum, yet predominantly from low income households; women and men serving time; veterans, and restored citizens
  • volunteer hours exceed 60,000 per year


Harmony has received recognition for its work:

  • Bridge Builders Award
  • Continuous Improvement Grant Recipient of The Columbus Foundation
  • Spirit of Columbus Award of The Columbus Foundation
  • Community Shelter Board Bob Lazarus Unsung Hero Award
  • Columbus True Original of The Columbus Foundation
  • Performing Arts Prize of The Columbus Foundation

Harmony’s music programs have shared the stages with John Legend, Whoopi Goldberg, Natalie Cole, Melissa Etheridge, Lauren Daigle, Jane Pauley, and Joshuah Brian Campbell. Our chorus has been featured in performances for The President’s Cup, The New Albany Classic, NCAA Women’s Final Four, and on CBS Sunday Morning, The Kelly Clarkson Show, and The Nantucket Project.
