34th Annual Concert

Chinese Music Through The Ages Featuring Guzheng

只有回顧歷史,才能了解當下。只有展望未來,才能產生動力。
中國文化,需要後繼有人。中國古箏,需要年輕一代發揚光大。

繼2015年第三十三屆年度音樂會以後,古箏樂團今年將又一次提供免費公演。主講劉維姍老師將以古箏的歷史延承(用幻燈片及視頻展示8000年前的骨笛、塤、編鐘等等至今),帶領觀眾穿越中國音樂歷史發展歷程,並將演奏古代及現代的箏曲代表作:

春江花月夜 , 唧唧咕、小開手 , 秦桑曲 , 漁舟唱晚 , 瑤族舞曲 , 戰颱風 , 梅花三弄 , 心之浪

 

Only by reflecting on the past can we understand the present
Only by looking to the future can we inspire our creative talents
China’s culture continues only if succeeding generations adopt its traditions
Guzheng flourishes only through the passion of our your.

Like our 33rd Annual Concert in 2015, the SFGMS will present a free concert this year.  Ms. Weishan Liu will use multimedia to guide the audience through an 8000-year history of Chinese music, beginning with the bone flute, including Xun and Bell Chimes, and spotlighting guzheng past and contemporary masterpieces:

Moonlight Over Spring River, Henan Medley, Qin Rhapsody, Evening Song of the Fishman,
Dance of Yao, Battling the Typhoon, Three Variations of the Plum Blossoms, Voice of the Heart

 

This concert will be presented to the community free of charge, but tickets are required. Send email to info@guzheng.org to reserve your free tickets.  Donations are welcome so that we can continue our work to bring you high quality performances in the future.

Foster City Library Performance


Members of SFGMS performed at the Foster City Library on 9/17/2015 to help celebrate Autumn Moon Festival.  Here is a news article about the performance from the World Journal’s 9/28/2015 edition.




The San Francisco Gu-Zheng Music Society was formed in 1982 to promote and share the rich Chinese heritage through traditional, classical, folk, and contemporary music. Its goals are:

  • to introduce the music of guzheng (an ancient Chinese stringed instrument that dates back 2500 years) to the San Francisco Bay Area;
  • to promote a greater understanding and appreciation of traditional Chinese music and culture; and
  • to provide cultural exchange and performance opportunities for guzheng enthusiasts of all skill levels.

The Society stages an annual concert with a carefully selected theme to showcase certain aspect of Chinese music. It also performs at schools, libraries, community events, as well as fundraisers for non-profit organizations and worthy social causes.

In 1988, the Society was incorporated as a non-profit public benefit corporation under the laws of the State of California and qualified as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations to the Society are tax-deductible.
