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.

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!

Ringing Strings!

Opal glows in a beautiful, historic space

Friday, October 24 at 7:30 pm
in the intimate St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, 337 Charlotte Street, North Asheville

The Opal String Quartet brings its passionate style to romantic masterpieces, as well as two new compositions by composer Tim Winter of Saluda. Winter’s works are jazzy, lush and intriguing and create the perfect contrast for the deep sonorities of Johannes Brahms’ C Minor String Quartet and Ernest Bloch’s plaintive “Prelude.”

Guest violinist Seth Gangwer, a stunning multi-genre artist who just recently moved to WNC by way of Nashville, will join OSQ founding members violinist Ginger Kowal, violist Kara Poorbaugh and cellist Franklin Keel.

Tickets are $22 at the door / $5 for Students
