Concordia Students – Beijing Opera Fundraiser

On March 4, 2011 by admin

Two years ago, Jimmy discovered the great talent of Michelle Jiang (The Beijing Opera performer and teacher from Beijing), Nicholas (Michelle’s assistance Beijing Opera teacher in Concordia), and the Concordia students who were learning the Beijing Opera at that time. He witnessed their passion for the art.

In 2008, the very first fundraising Beijing Opera performance fundraising event was held at the Montreal Chinese Community and Cultural Center to raise funds for those students, so they can go to China to further their studies in Beijing Opera. It was a great success.

Since that time, Jimmy realized that the Concordia students were facing a very expensive trip to China for the Cultural exchange Beijing Opera program; Based on the tickets sales alone, there were not enough funds. It then became Jimmy’s mission as a Cultural center Youth Program director, to make their dreams become reality!

Jimmy knocked on many doors for the past weeks, meeting people explain the important value for their sponsorship.

Jimmy also helped organize a fundraising event, where the Beijing Opera students would perform their art for the public. Jimmy and the students raised enough funds to send them to China to extend their Beijing Opera training!
