Guzheng is a Chinese traditional plucked musical instrument with over 2500 years of history. Throughout its history, the Guzheng keeps its vitality by interweaving its music with rich folk culture and creative performances in each generation.
In Xinmin Primary Guzheng Ensemble, students will pick up the foundational skills and move on to play various genres of music once they acquire the basic playing techniques. Students are often given platforms to showcase what they have learnt, e.g. Performing HeArts, Recognition Day concert and Mid-Autumn Festival celebration concert. In 2016, Xinmin Primary Guzheng Ensemble managed to attain the Certificate of Distinction in the SYF Arts Presentation (Guzheng). In 2017, Xinmin Primary Guzheng Ensemble was honoured to be invited to perform in the Esplanade’s “In Youthful Company” series at the Esplanade Concourse.
