Harmony Project’s presentation of 1968: the Concert for Community was truly inspirational. From the imagery to the music and the spoken word, the choir painted a picture of who we are and who we hope to become.
Throughout the planning of the event, it was important for Harmony Project founder David Brown to make this show accessible to all.
Through a partnership with Kind Columbus – an initiative of The Columbus Foundation, they were able to make that happen.
“Kind Columbus’s mission is to build community through unconditional random acts of kindness,” said Kelley Griesmer, Senior Vice President and Manager of Walter Family Philanthropy at the Columbus Foundation. “And there is no better collaborator than Harmony Project in doing that.”
Thanks to the $100,000 grant from Kind Columbus, more than 7,000 people were able to fill the Columbus Commons for a free show.
“We absolutely believe that music and the arts are so important to how a community reacts to each other,” said Griesmer.
It’s the hope of all involved that the audience will carry the message and energy of the show with them into their everyday lives.
