"In Harmony" ​

Just 30 miles, and 200 years, from the big city
"In Harmony" Heritage Music Festival
Vision of long-term Board President, John Ruch
The festival was made possible through a generous anonymous grant in honor of John Ruch, who served as president of Historic Harmony from 1984 to 1990 and again for more than 20 years beginning in 1995 when he worked tirelessly to preserve the culture and heritage of the Harmonists, a German separatists group that founded Harmony in 1804.

This festival is to realize John’s vision to promote the extensive  musical heritage of the Harmonists, using the beautiful historic venues he helped to preserved in and around Harmony’s National Landmark District.
