About Harmony Guzheng Ensemble

The Guzheng, also known as the Chinese Zither or harp is a traditional Chinese string instrument that has been around for more than two thousand years. The Guzheng is not just an instrument but also a storyteller—having the ability to paint pictures of the beautiful sceneries and stories of Ancient China through its fluid and elegant sounds.
Harmony Guzheng Ensemble is a Calgary based non-profit music organization for Guzheng lovers. The ensemble is lead by Shirley Wong, a former GuZheng instructor of Hong Kong GuZheng Performers Association. Since established, it has been consistently demonstrating and promoting Chinese music culture in many community activities and charity activities with this treasured musical instrument. It is also a happy family of Guzheng lovers.
