Toronto Guqin Society welcomes Dr. Mingmei Yip, reknowned guqin player and author on Chinese scholarly aesthetics. Her Chinese work “Guqin Yinyue Yishu” (Commercial Press, 1991) is a cornerstone reader for students and players alike in understanding the background and development of qin history and cultural values, and its links with the other scholarly arts.
Dr. Yip will be in Toronto during the March Break pre-weekend March 15-17, and we look forward to enjoying time with her, sharing music (of all kinds) and insights, followed by a dinner reception at a nearby restaurant.
Please RSVP via the Facebook event page or by response here by Saturday, March 10, 2012. Aside from guqins, we also welcome other chamber music instruments from all origins to join in the fun!
