This music program mainly consists of two parts. The first part is an introduction to the guqin and xiao, focusing on the history and origins of these instruments, the aesthetics of their music, and specific playing techniques. The second part primarily features instrumental performances, including the guqin, xiao, flute, and guzheng.

Traditionally, the four arts of the Chinese literati are “琴 Qin, 棋 Chinese Chess, 書 calligraphy and 畫 painting.” This event is an opportunity for more culture enthusiasts to get to know and understand this ancient and traditional music art form. These traditional arts are treasures belonging to all people.
