Perfect Harmony Cultural Exchange Association was formed in 2011 as a California 501(c)3 non-profit organization by a group of friends who treasure Cantonese Opera as a valuable Chinese heritage and an important art form.Cantonese Opera has been recognized by UNESCO as part of its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Perfect Harmony engages in theatrical productions, classes, demonstrations, workshops and speaker series.
As an inaugural event in 2011, Perfect Harmony brought in a troupe of more than 30 people from Hong Kong’s Sing Fai Cantonese Opera Promotion Association which included 14 child performers and musicians to perform at Baldwin Park Performance Art Center for an evening of opera. In 2012, we started a class teaching local Californian kids in opera singing and movements. Our members and students perform for senior residence of an assisted living facility on a monthly basis. We also work with other organizations with a focus on child development.
The association’s funding comes from donations, sponsorships and fundraising events.
