New York Qin Society

The New York Qin Society was founded in 2000 by Jung-ping Yuan and a group of qin players and sinologists to explore and enjoy the music and culture of the qin. Its members have enjoyed regular meetings at least every two months since then. The presentations of the members have been published in the Society's Journal, and are regularly published in this website (see Events and Journal).

In the period since 2001, the New York Qin Society has presented a variety of outreach programs at venues such as the China Institute, Lotus Music and Dance, the Scholar's Garden at the Staten Island Botanical Garden, the Taipei Theater, etc. The New York Qin Society was in residence at Staten Island Botanical Garden from 2001 through 2004. In 2005, members participated in the CHIME conference in Amsterdam, in performances at the Japanese Garden of the Hammond Museum and in New York's CultureFest, as well as performances and yajis around the world. Starting in 2011, the NYQS has been giving a regular series of concerts and lectures at The Three Jewels, a community dharma center in downtown Manhattan.
