New Harmony Line is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization spun out of the M.I.T. Media Laboratory’s Opera of the Future group. Our mission is to bring the joy of artistic creativity into every young person’s life. We are driven by a passion to knock down the barriers that deprive millions of children and youths of an education that is enriched by music, where their unique stories and voice are valued and lifted up. This is about education that has meaning and purpose. 

We seek to partner with individuals and organizations to build and sustain collaborations that promote individuals’ creativity and civic engagement through music.
