Welcome to the 6th Season of the New Harmony Music Festival and School

New Harmony Music School Practice

Once again, musicians, students, families and friends gather for a full week of engaging music education and performances unlike anything found elsewhere! Erasing boundaries between classical, jazz, world, and traditional music, everyone gets to experience this fusion of styles and perspectives in intimate settings around the community of New Harmony, Indiana. Join us once, and you will keep coming back for more!

Venue Map

The New Harmony Music Festival and School embraces both classical and traditional “musics”: a place where musicians, students, and music appreciators could immerse themselves in an environment free from the strictures of “label”, “style” or “category” and explore the common threads and roots of acoustic music from these two traditions. –Chris Layer, Founder
