Asian Heritage Month: Chinese Zither Music Performance

April 25
2:00 PM — 4:00 PM
199 Chambers St., Room S-723

Join us for a Chinese Zither performance, featuring performer JunLing Wong.


About the Chinese Zither

The guzheng also known as the Chinese zither, is a Chinese plucked string instrument with a more than 2,500-year history. It has 16 (or more) strings and movable bridges.

The guzheng fuses Chinese history and culture as an instrument and decorative art. Artists created unique cultural and artistic content on the instrument, reflecting poetry and the relationship between painting and calligraphy. Decorations include carved art, carved lacquer, straw, mother-of-pearl inlays, painting, shell carving (jade) and cloisonné.

Sponsor: Ling Luo, Chinese Cultural Association
