Guzheng, also known as the Chinese zither, is a unique music instrument which originated in China over 2500 years ago.
Lin Zheng, founder of Zheng’s Music Studio, along with her students, held their inaugural concert (Rhythm of Chinese Guzheng) at The PumpHouse Theatre in Takapuna last year. Following on from their highly successful performance, this year in October, they will host their second annual concert entitled Charm of Guzheng to New Zealand audiences.
This year’s performance will consist of a variety of genres, from traditional Chinese Guzheng music to modern day pop. Several of these songs have been adapted by Lin Zheng herself, which will be premiered in this year’s show.
