Exchange programme with other Guzheng Ensembles
The Guzheng Ensemble works closely with the other performing arts CCAs, so that the members of Guzheng Ensemble will have opportunities to learn about other performing art forms and to learn from the other CCAs. During non-SYF years, the Guzheng Ensemble works with the other performing arts CCAs to put up Pei Hwa’s biennial public concert, PHiesta. The annual performing arts camp also allows the different performing arts group members to work with and learn from each other.
