In Harmony is a national initiative that aims to inspire and transform the lives of children, their families and wider communities through school and community-based orchestral music-making. The programme, funded by the Department for Education and Arts Council England, has ongoing projects in Lambeth and Liverpool, Newcastle and Gateshead, Nottingham, and Telford and Stoke in addition to In Harmony Opera North.

It seeks to deliver an inclusive programme of high-quality music education and performance opportunities to encourage young people from ethnically diverse and socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds to engage with the arts and, through doing so, benefit from a range of wider outcomes.
