The 7th Annual Chinese Culture Month Festival and
Chinese New Year Celebration at ASA College

     January 30, 2016  –  March 12, 2016

The New York Guqin Association 
in collaboration with ASA College Presents
A Little Afternoon Music: Guqin Yaji (古琴雅集)

Saturday, January 30, 2016 from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Guqin, or seven-stringed zither, is the only instrument indigenous to China,. Allusions to the guqin are found in texts dating back more than 3,000 years. A must-play instrument among the literati elite – think scholars, philosophers, poets – the bulk of the guqin repetoire today consists of music that has passed down through the centuries from teacher to student.
Confucius once said, “It is through Poetry that the mind is kindled. It is through Rites that character is established. It is from Music that all is perfected.”
