After 28 years of service to The New Harmony Project, the incredibly talented Joel Grynheim is stepping down from his post as Project Director. The heart and spirit that Joel brought to the banks of the Wabash River each May were as constant and steady as his presence. Joel’s dedication to and passion for The New Harmony Project is unmatched, and his legacy will live on for many years to come.
In an effort to honor him and recognize the pivotal role he has played in nearly three decades of serving artists, The New Harmony Project is overjoyed to announce that Joel’s legacy will continue on by officially dedicating The Joel Grynheim Theater Education Program to henceforth carry his name. Students have been part of The New Harmony Project since it was founded in 1987, and have had the opportunity to observe and work directly with theatre, film and television professionals from across the country. Much like Joel, these students represent the unsung heart and drive of The New Harmony Project. We cannot think of a better tribute to Joel than to support the development of young theater artists as they embark on their professional careers.
