Every year, CYCS holds an instrument exam with the Central Conservatory of Music (CCOM) of China. Students from all over the Bay Area took the instrument examination and got evaluated by experts from CCOM. There are 23 candidates who receive high scores in the exam this year and they are invited to perform in this concert recital. It provides an opportunity for these candidates to showcase their efforts and achievement with Chinese traditional instruments and to further improve their performing skills. It also offers an occasion for other students at all level to learn from each other. Performers play Chinese traditional instruments such as guzheng, erhu, yangqin, dizi, pipa, and zhongruan.
