"In Harmony: A Sesame Street Record" and "In Harmony 2" are two Grammy Award-winning compilation albums of children's music performed by various artists, released in 1980 and 1982, respectively.

The first album has a stronger connection to the television series "Sesame Street" than the second, as it includes a song performed by the characters Ernie and Cookie Monster, while no Muppet-related content appears on the second album. However, the second album's credits state that a "royalty is being donated to the Children's Television Workshop and various children's charities" from its proceeds.

Each of the albums was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Recording for Children, at the Grammy Awards of 1981 and Grammy Awards of 1983, respectively.

Bruce Springsteen's performance of "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town", which appears on the second album, was recorded live at C. W. Post College in Greenvale, New York on December 12, 1975. Springsteen's rendition of the song has received radio airplay perennially at Christmastime for years; it has appeared on Billboard magazine's Hot Singles Recurrents chart each year from 2002 to 2007 due to seasonal airplay. "In Harmony 2" marks the only appearance of the recording on an album, although it was later released as the B-side of Springsteen's single "My Hometown" in 1985.
