Ancient music comes to Pleasanton Library at 2 p.m. today

Guqin music dates back 3,000 years

Guqin music master Fei Wang will perform at the Pleasanton Library this Sunday, playing China's oldest string music, the plucked seven-string guqin, part of the zither family.

The program, which will include a lecture as well as the performance, will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday. Guqin music dates back 3,000 years and is part of UNESCO's Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity Program.

The music of Guqin was also on a record that was launched with the Voyager spacecraft in 1977. Fei Wang, who studied Guqin under a Guqin Master, has performed internationally and won awards for Chinese music.
