Shining Light Project

Connecting all across our community

In 2012, Pan Harmonia launched Shining Light Project to bring professional chamber music to underserved people in Western North Carolina. 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 facilities. We believe music’s enlightening and healing power ought not to be limited by boundaries of access.

A lovely time at HVOC, March 2014

Pan Harmonia artists 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 individuals. If you would like to participate in this initiative, please consider making a gift to Pan Harmonia. All donations are tax-deductible. Donate here.

Also, if you would like to recommend a facility for us to serve, please write Rosalind and let us know.
