Project Harmony

An intensive afterschool youth program focused on Charlotte communities with the fewest resources, Project Harmony is a music and leadership program aimed at expanding the vision of what's possible in the lives of area youth.

Project Harmony is social transformation through music.

In partnership with Arts Plus, and established on the heels of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Opportunity Task Force recommendations, Project Harmony expands the Charlotte Symphony's Winterfield Youth Orchestra program and fosters skill development and personal empowerment opportunities to Charlotte's underserved east, west, and southwest neighborhoods.

Project Harmony is inspired by the renowned El Sistema youth and community development program of Venezuela. The program served Charlotte's Winterfield, Montclaire, Oaklawn, and West Sugar Creek neighborhoods in the 2018-19 season and aims to serve 500 children by 2020.
