In Harmony Montclair will hold its seventh annual benefit show virtually on July 15 at 8 p.m. The show, including singing, dancing and other musical performances can be streamed from In Harmony Montclair’s YouTube channel.

The show will be streamed for free, but the event is a fundraiser for education nonprofit IMANI, which aims to close the achievement gap in Montclair Public Schools. Donations may be made on the event’s GoFundMe page.

“The pandemic resulted in a lot of stress and educational challenges this year and IMANI’s work is more important than ever,” founder and director of In Harmony Montclair Maggie Borgen said. “I hope the audience will enjoy the creativity of the participants for our virtual benefit concert.”

In Harmony Montclair has held summer fundraising concerts since 2015.

SAVE MONTCLAIR LOCAL: We need your support, and we need it today. The journalism you value from Montclair Local, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, depends on the community's support — we exist because the old model of selling ads alone just can't fund journalism at the level we endeavor to provide. That's why you've seen other local newsrooms cut back staff or shut down entirely. Montclair Local was created because we believe that's unacceptable; the community's at its best when triumphs are celebrated, when power is held to account, when diverse lived experiences are shared — when the community is well-informed.

Montclair is seeking to raise $230,000 from donors, members and grantors between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 to put us on firm footing for 2022, and continue supporting the hard work of our journalists into the new year and beyond. Visit to see how we're doing and make your contribution.
