The Washington Guzheng Society was founded in 2000 by a group of Guzheng musicians and enthusiasts. It is a non-profit organization. The goal of our group is to introduce Chinese culture to all audiences through guzheng music. The group is actively involved in community performances and public service programs. We have held a variety of performances in the Baltimore Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, the U.S. National Arboretum , the University of Maryland, the Smithsonian Institution, the Montgomery County public libraries, elementary schools, churches, and local malls. During 2003, the Washington Guzheng Society performed at the Kennedy Center along with other music groups and received favorable reviews ("A superb performance") from the Washington Post.
Additionally, the Washington Guzheng Society provides guzheng teaching and education programs. Recitals are presented yearly. We are moving forward into a new era, defining Guzheng music for future generations.
