The San Francisco Gu-Zheng Music Society was formed in 1982 to promote and share the rich Chinese heritage through traditional, classical, folk, and contemporary music. Its goals are:

  • to introduce the music of guzheng (an ancient Chinese stringed instrument that dates back 2500 years) to the San Francisco Bay Area;
  • to promote a greater understanding and appreciation of traditional Chinese music and culture; and
  • to provide cultural exchange and performance opportunities for guzheng enthusiasts of all skill levels.

The Society stages an annual concert with a carefully selected theme to showcase certain aspect of Chinese music. It also performs at schools, libraries, community events, as well as fundraisers for non-profit organizations and worthy social causes.

In 1988, the Society was incorporated as a non-profit public benefit corporation under the laws of the State of California and qualified as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations to the Society are tax-deductible.
