Harmony is Big Apple Performing Arts’ annual fundraising extravaganza—the city’s most flamboyant gala—benefiting New York City Gay Men’s Chorus and Youth Pride Chorus. First launched in 2009, Harmony has become one of the most fun, high-energy, and must-attend fundraising galas on the New York social calendar. Harmony blends sumptuous food, drinks, spectacular performances, surprising celebrity guests, fun auctions for high-end prizes, and a celebrity DJ dance party, all hosted at some of the city’s hottest and most seductive venues. 

The missions of both New York City Gay Men’s Chorus and Youth Pride Chorus have always been about pushing the envelope, being fierce champions for equality, love, and acceptance, and having a damn good time doing it. Every Harmony gala brings all of these passions to life at an event that is guaranteed to both warm and race your heart.
