Our mission and purpose
To provide opportunities for young people to develop confidence, leadership, creativity, and resilience through the joy and practice of harmony singing.
Pan Pacific Harmony is a not-for-profit society founded in November 2015.
Our primary purpose is the education and development of youth through harmony singing. We do this through activities and events including education workshops, competitions, performance opportunities and shows. These events and activities facilitate more than just the attainment of musical skill; they also provide a supportive environment where youth can build important life skills and engage with others who share the same interests.
We rely on grants and sponsorships to run our activities and events, and our team are all volunteers. Any profits we make are put back into the education and development of youth.
Why harmony singing?
Singing has power. It has the power to make individuals and communities healthier and happier. But it’s increasingly becoming a spectator sport. We want to change this. We’ve seen how harmony singing can change lives and give young people confidence and resilience to succeed in other aspects of their lives.
Singing cuts across barriers. It doesn’t require expensive musical instruments. All you need is a cooperative group of friends, each with their own special voice. It gives young people a chance to shine and to rise to the top.
Singing is about family and friends. It’s about directly engaging with another human being, sharing talent and working and cooperating on a project together. The spirit of camaraderie that develops among the singers is quite extraordinary.
Singing teaches perseverance and patience. It’s a lot of work. It takes many months of determination and practice. But with all these ingredients coming together, anyone can sing four-part harmony.
If you like what we do and want to be part of something special, there are many ways you can get involved as a participant, volunteer, educator or business. For businesses, we offer a variety of sponsorship and partnership opportunities, and would love to talk to you about how we can work together for mutual benefit.
