Many thanks to Yuni who invited me and Renjie to join this local community celebrating Chinese full moon festival event. It was a lovely day with lovely folks at this wonderful time. Jeffersonville NY is a little town where I had never been before. Wasn't sure if such quiet and meditated music would be appreciated or not by local folks who might had never hear it before. It came out very well and successful.
At this event, I also introduced a little bit histories of the guqin, the full moon festival, and the story of eating moon cake at the day of full moon festival. Looking at the reaction from the audience, really made me glad and feel honored that I was there with them.
