Welcome to the Gu-Zheng Music Concert of 1996. The Chinatown Community Arts Program of the San Francisco Art Commission is proud to sponsor this performance presented by the San Francisco Gu-Zheng Music Society.
Today’s show is the result of the hard work and dedication of the performers. They represent some of the finest in their artistry. Through their performances, the brilliance of Chinese culture will enhance the multicultural background that we find in the United States.
The preparation of these performances was made through hard and intense work done in short notice under challenging manpower and financial constraints. I would like to extend my deepest gratitude and respect to all the members of the San Francisco Gu-Zheng Music Society. I am especially grateful to the director and instructor of the San Francisco Gu-Zheng Music Society, Ms. Weishan Liu. She has worked selflessly in coordinating and attending all matters related to this concert.
My sincere thanks to all the supporting individuals and organizations, particularly to all the volunteers for their enthusiastic support. I would like to give special thanks to the San Francisco Art Commission and the affiliated Community Art and Education Program for their ardent and solid support. I also want to express my thanks to the Chinese Culture Foundation for co-sponsoring this event. Finally, I wish to thank all of you for your support in making the Gu-Zheng Music Concert of 1996 a great success.
Julie L. Cheung Director Chinatown Community Arts Program of the San Francisco Art Commission
