Annual BIG Gathering…in November!

Toronto Guqin Society traditionally holds its largest gathering during Dongzhi on December 22 every year, but this year, we would like to have our fellow members who are out of Toronto (for Christmas break) to re/connect with other fellow players and share their interest in the Chinese scholarly arts in good company.

A big kudos to Thomas Yun for offering his (new) place in a condo near Yonge/Sheppard as venue. Please bring $5 (and any housewarming gifts) on the day of the event.
