Harmonium Choral Society, based in Morris County, is one of New Jersey's leading choral arts organizations.

Levine, Harmonium's composers-in-residence Mark Miller and Martin Sedek, and others.

Directed by Dr. Anne J. Matlack of Madison, Harmonium’s season consists of four subscription concerts held in December, March, April, and June, as well as numerous special events and partnerships. Harmonium, known for its eclectic programming, choral excellence, and community spirit, sponsors commissions and musicianship workshops, as well as an Outreach Chorus that performs in schools, nursing homes, and other venues. Harmonium sponsors an annual High School Student Choral Composition Contest, which celebrated its 23rd anniversary in the 2019-20 season. This innovative program won the prestigious Chorus America Education and Outreach Award.
