Thanks again to all of you, our members, friends, donors and volunteers for making 2007 such a gratifying year for NAGA.
This year is NAGA's 10th anniversary. The Mayor of Milpitas, Jose Esteves, proclaimed the world's first Guqin Day, to recognize and commend NAGA for using the guqin as a bridge between the American and Chinese cultures in the United States , and for our efforts to restore and promote the significance of this world heritage art form! (For more detailed coverage please see http://www.chineseculture.net/guqin/newsletters/07nagaevents/nagaguqinday0619.htm .)
In the last ten years NAGA has grown in membership and has increased the number of programs it offers to the public. Please check out our NAGA Events Review slide show video to see NAGA's activities from the past decade ĘC you might even see yourself there!
