What's your schedule on Sunday, April 4, 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM? How about check out the First Annual Zheng in the Spring Concert at NYC's Carnegie Hall!
For those who do not know, the gu-zheng (古爭) or just zheng for short, is an instrument of Classical Chinese music. As shown in the poster, it is a plucked string instrument. The positions of the bridges (those small pieces that slightly raise the strings) affect the major in use. The gu-zheng figures prominently in Chinese history and literature, but to me, the kung-fu movie junkie, Kung Fu Hustle has one of the more famous zheng scene in recent memory.
My wife, son, and niece will be in the performance. No kidding. Although the kids do not like it, as they are all shy, the performance will be good for them. In the future, should they want to follow a musical career, their resumes sure look good with reference to Carnegie Hall, even if it's the smaller hall of the famous place.
Give me a call and leave a message with info to get back to you if you are interested in attending the concert. Click on the "poster" for details.
