The Mosaic Concert Series was created by Matthew Johnson Harris (Director/Choreographer) in 2016 after the presidential election. The concert series raises funds and awareness for different non-profits advocating for causes or organizations that have been marginalized by the current administration. Since it's creation the concert series has raised thousands of dollars for LGBTQIA+ youth, Muslim organizations, Women's Rights, Puerto Rico Relief, and many other organizations.

Past performers have included cast members from the Broadway's Kinky Boots, Wicked, The Color Purple, Beautiful, Carousel, Dear Evan Hansen, Hamilton, and many more. The director of music for this concert is Drew Wutke. Alyssa Fox and Aisha Jackson are currently playing opposite each other as the standbys for Elsa and Anna in Frozen on Broadway. Matthew Johnson Harris most recently served as choreographer and as a member of the creative direction team for music videos for "45" and "Learn to Love" by Tituss Burgess. He is currently a core instructor at Alvin Ailey's Ailey Extension.

Middle Collegiate Church is a welcoming, artistic, inclusive, and bold representation of God's love at 7th Street and 2nd Avenue in the East Village, where you are welcome just as you are as you come through the door. Rev. Jacqui Lewis is the Senior Minister.

The band featured Drew Wutke (Piano), Bernice Brooks (Drums), David White (Bass), Hajime Yoshida (Guitar).
