Pan Harmonia embraces diverse world music from Baroque times to the 21st century, often mixing genres, styles and flavors in a single performance. We offer a mosaic of year-round programs for all ages including concerts, educational residencies and imaginative community outreach. We love playing music in unexpected places - from historic venues to rustic mountain chapels. Ensembles differ with each project. Our private performances range from family celebrations to meaningful meditations and corporate events.
We welcome collaborations with other artists including painters, dancers, poets and storytellers and enjoy partnering with a wide array of community organizations. Pan Harmonia is committed to paying professional musicians a living wage.
Though we are serious about our music, its sublime beauty and transcendental power, we try not to take ourselves too seriously. Our productions are serious fun!

We believe social justice and arts access go hand in hand. Pan Harmonia seeks to bring its music to the full spectrum of our society. Proceeds from this performance will benefit Pan Harmonia’s outreach, Shining Light Project and Homeward Bound.
Shining Light Project brings chamber music concerts to people far from the classical music mainstream–folks in prisons, homeless shelters and senior centers. We believe the arts ennoble the heart. We believe in the transcendental power of music to touch, uplift and inspire.
Homeward Bound ends homelessness in WNC by moving people into homes of their own and providing the support they need to stay in housing. Its programs include Room in the Inn, the AHOPE Day Center, Women At Risk, and others. Since 2006, Homeward Bound has housed almost 800 people, of which 89% of have remained in stable housing.
Pan Harmonia enjoys partnering with local organizations to raise awareness and bring community together. This is the 4th annual concert Pan Harmonia has produced to benefit Homeward Bound, and for us, it is a perfect fit.
Can’t make the event, but still would like to participate? We appreciate your support!
