Guqin - AM Musings
 
Since starting my training as an Asian Art Museum Docent, my journey has taken me to new places.  Last weekend, I attended a performance of traditional Chinese music.  One of the featured performers was Alan Yip, playing the guqin.  The Guqin is a 7 string zither that dates back about 2,000 years or more.  Music written over 1,000 years ago are still played!  Haunting and thoughtful, this piece is played by American born Alan Yip,  a young graduate student who has been playing the guqin for about 10 years.
