History of PH

The Origins: “Project Harmony”

In 1985, three people in a small town in Vermont shared the idea that personal contact between people of the US and USSR could help ease the tensions of the Cold War. They were friends—a teacher, an architect, and a lawyer—and although they were not development experts, they were committed to finding a way for young people from the US and USSR to meet. “Project Harmony” began with the exchange of student choir groups between high schools in America and the Soviet Union when in the spring of 1985, a delegation of US teenagers from Harwood Union High School in Vermont traveled to Leningrad. Soon, Project Harmony was initiating youth performing arts exchanges between New Englanders and people from all corners of the Soviet Union.
