Sound of China Guzheng Ensemble

L.A. County Holiday Celebration Featured Performers

About

The Sound of China Guzheng Ensemble (SOCGE) was formed by a group of guzheng lovers in 2006. The ensemble is a non-profit organization with the goal to promote guzheng music through public performances. Under the direction of Professor Cynthia Hsiang, ensemble members include professional guzheng players such as Cookie Zhao, gold medalist from the National Youth Fine Arts Competition; Audry Zeng, gold medalist from China's New Star on Arts Competition; and Luffy Ling, award winner from the National College Arts Competition. Other members of the ensemble are mostly well reputed guzheng musicians and teachers.

SOCGE regularly gives performances in the Greater Los Angeles area as well as abroad. In 2012, the group hosted the Sound of Asia series to promote and share all types of Asian guzheng music. In 2013 and 2017, SOCGE was invited to perform at the Chinese Guzheng Arts Conference in Yangzhou. In 2016, the ensemble hosted an international guzheng exchange concert inviting guzheng musicians around the world to perform in Los Angeles; that year the ensemble was also invited to perform in Hong Kong and Taiwan. In 2017, SOCGE produced its first Sound of China Guzheng Ensemble album, Melodies of Zheng, in the United States. In 2019, the group was invited to perform at the Malaysia Guzheng Festival.
