Working for peace and understanding through music

Musica Harmonia was newly formed in 2007. The musicians, who met through the Eastern Music Festival in Greensboro, N.C., come together in this ensemble with a goal to promote peace and cultural understanding through musical collaboration.

They all have experienced life in many countries of the world including Brazil, Australia, France, the Netherlands, Portugal and the USA.
