波 特 蘭 文 藝 中 心

波特蘭文藝中心是附屬波特蘭新聞旗下的一個非牟利機構,成立於2003 年,宗旨是在本地區宏揚中華文化。

自成立以來,波特蘭文藝中心一直都獲到社區人士的支持,期間更舉辦過不少的文化活動。為了讓旅居美國的華人子女有機會了解更多中國文化,波特蘭文藝中心舉辦不同的課程,學員可透過音樂或藝術的學習,認識中華文化。現有的課程包括有中國民族舞蹈、歌唱(波特蘭兒童合唱團)、功夫及樂器等。大部份課程均於每星期六在波特蘭社區學院東南區校舍內上課。

廣泛為社區熟悉且有多次演出經驗的波特蘭兒童合唱團更成立早於2001年,團員年齡由5歲至14歲,每星期訓練一次,透過聲樂的學習,用自己的聲音來表達出對中華文化的欣賞。參加的兒童不須要懂中文。波特蘭兒童合唱團現任指揮是許慈恩先生,許先生移民前已在香港浸會大學取得音樂教育學士學位,來美後在西方神學院繼續深造,並取得音樂碩士學位。
  

Portland Art & Cultural Center

Founded in year 2003, Portland Art & Cultural Center (PACC) is a subsidiary of Portland Chinese Times with a mission to promote Chinese culture through art and music.

PACC is a 501c non-profit organization. Since establishment, PACC has received support from the community. Throughout the years, a number of cultural activities have been brought to the public by the Center. In order to educate the next generation about various Chinese culture arts, PACC provides various classes including singing (Portland Chinese Children’s Choir), Chinese folk dance, Wushu, music instruments etc.. Most of our classes are held at PCC SE Center Campus every Saturday afternoon.

The most special group formed through the center is the Portland Chinese Children Choir. Purpose of the choir is to provide children an opportunity to learn music, using their voices to appreciate Chinese culture. Children do not need to know any Chinese to join this Choir. Charles Hui, the Conductor of the Choir, has over 20 years of Children’s Choir conducting experience. Mr. Hui has a Bachelor Degree in Music Education from Hong Kong Baptist University. He has further his education here in Portland and received his Master’s degree in Church Music from Western Seminary.
