Music Bringing Light!
In 2012, Pan Harmonia launched Shining Light Project to bring light through chamber music to Western North Carolina audiences during the dark winter months. Beyond the world of traditional concerts and performances, this venture provides free programs of live music to those often forgotten in our community: our neighbors in nursing homes, homeless shelters, prisons and other such facilities. Pan Harmonia musicians truly believe that music brings light to places where it struggles to shine, working its way through adverse conditions to bring clarity and joy.
Pan Harmonia seeks to spark thought and discovery, and to sooth and excite through music. We connect with all facets of our community and bring music to those who may be struggling or are disadvantaged– people who could benefit from a glimpse into the musical world.
Shining Light Project is completely supported by private donations. If you would like to participate in this initiative, please consider a donation to Pan Harmonia. All donations are tax-deductible. Also, if you would like to recommendate a facility for us to serve, please write Rosalind and let us know.
