About In Harmony Liverpool
Launched on 9 March 2009, 84 primary aged children in Everton began learning musical instruments and rehearsing as an ensemble, and 12 weeks later made their debut performance at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall as the West Everton Children’s Orchestra.
Today, more than 1,500 young people aged 0-18 years across Everton and Anfield learn a musical instrument free of charge, and play as part of an orchestra each week.
Children make music, learn an instrument, sing, compose, listen, rehearse and perform together each week in and out of school, led by professional musicians.
The result is that music is embedded within the community.
"It gives you new opportunities so that you can earn a better living, live a happy life."

The life-changing results of In Harmony
“In Harmony has been a light in dark times. It is the oxygen we need.”
The results of In Harmony have been consistently positive. Through music education, children become more self-confident, resilient and independent. They concentrate more, work effectively as teams, and support one another as musicians.
In Harmony not only creates opportunities for young people, but puts them in a position to make active and informed decisions. Children feel empowered and equipped with the necessary skills and aspiration to create their own bright futures.
In Harmony is targeted at children with the greatest need and fewest resources – over 40% of In Harmony children are classed as living in poverty.
