POSITION TITLE: PROGRAM MANAGER

Organizational Background

The Harmony Program is a not-for-profit organization that provides musical training to children from economically disadvantaged communities in New York City. The Harmony Program’s unique model taps accomplished musicians as teachers, training them to develop the talents of young people who would not ordinarily be exposed to music education.

The Harmony Program is inspired by Venezuela's national youth orchestra system, "El Sistema." Committed to improving society through music, El Sistema has gained international acclaim for the breadth of its reach, the quality of its musicians, and the power of its positive influence on the young lives it touches. In the spirit of El Sistema, the Harmony Program emphasizes the influence of music-making on social development, encourages learning through ensemble playing, fosters a supportive community for program participants and families, and requires of all involved a high degree of commitment to daily music study.

  • Overseeing school-based programs in the Bronx, including student registration, attendance, logistics, and communication among teachers, school leaders, and Harmony administrators;
