PAN HARMONIA receives 2 grants from the North Carolina Arts Council for its 2017-2018 season!
The second grant, New Realities, brings Nello McDaniel, Director of Arts Action Research, back into our sphere. When Pan Harmonia was still Keowee Chamber Music, we were privileged to work with Nello for 4 years through New Realities, learning a massive amount about organizational development. We credit much of our success to this experience!
The New Realities grant is particularly timely, because with the 2017-2018 season, Rosalind Buda steps up to be Pan Harmonia’s Executive Director. The board of directors along with founder and Artistic Director Kate Steinbeck is so pleased to have Rosalind take on additional responsibilities in sharing the growth and direction of this vibrant company.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
