Chinese Dulcimer Guzheng Youth Band

美國華樂學會青少年樂團--中國揚琴古箏青少年樂團是近幾年來活躍在波士頓舞台上一支年輕的充滿活力的中國民樂團. 由原中國中央民族樂團首席演奏家李平女士親自指揮與執教。這支隊伍的建立為身居海外熱愛中國文化藝術的炎黃子孫建立了一個相互學習的良好平台。為弘揚中國文化發揮著積極的作用。

經過嚴格的集訓和刻苦練習,該團的演奏水平不斷提高,許多團員己達到九級演奏水準。該團自2007年成立以來,每年受邀參加波士頓第一夜的演出,以及博物館,老人院,圖書館和諸多社區的節日慶典演出。該團的演出得到了社會各界的好評,並在2012年榮獲麻省文化協會頒發的獎狀及獎金。
