The Liedertafel Harmonie (German Singing Society Portland, Oregon) has been a tradition in Portland since 1923. They are a vital link in Portland's German community, keeping German culture alive through their annual concerts, dances, picnics, and much more. The annual Weihnachtskonzert (Christmas concert) is the highlight of their yearly schedule, with the audience growing every year. Together with a festive gathering afterwards which includes a traditional German Christmas dessert buffet, and an authentic German Christmas bake sale, their concert has truly become an event not to be missed in Portland during the holiday season.
The Liedertafel Harmonie has about sixty active members who meet Friday evenings (September through May) from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the German American Society building.
As with all other choirs in the North Pacific Singing Federation, the Liedertafel Harmonie is committed to continuing what their founding members established and enjoyed. This includes preserving German songs, German culture, the German language, German Gemütlichkeit (fellowship), as well as building strong friendships amongst choir members, other choirs in the local community.
If you have Friday nights free and like to sing, or like to socialize, please come and join the Liedertafel Harmonie here at the German American Society building. The Liedertafel Harmonie welcomes visitors and new singers of all levels and backgrounds., Speaking German is not a requirement as non-speakers are highly encouraged to join.
