COLUMBUS, Ohio—“I really enjoyed the combination of color, music, and motion—very enjoyable,” said Executive Director Randy Snyder of Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company. Mr. Snyder and his wife Tess joined the very appreciative crowd at the Ohio Theatre on Feb. 9.
New York-based Shen Yun aims to revive 5,000 years of divinely inspired culture and share it with the world.
“A Shen Yun performance features the world’s foremost classically trained dancers, a unique orchestra blending the sounds of both East and West, breathtaking backdrops, splendid costumes, singers—together creating an experience that’s leaving millions in awe,” their website states.
The couple had never seen Shen Yun before. “Very good, the colors were just spectacular,” said Mrs. Snyder.
The colors of the hundreds of handmade often strike audiences as breathtaking.
“I’m a musician, play some guitar, mostly in churches, So I appreciate the music side of it, but it’s beautiful to see all the color,” said Mr. Snyder, who heads up Financial Services at Franklin University.
He felt that Shen Yun’s orchestra which combines both Eastern and Western instruments was very beautiful.
The ability to blend these two musical traditions “to create one fresh, harmonious sound is what makes the Shen Yun Performing Arts Orchestra unique,” the website states.
Mrs. Snyder felt it all was “very good, everything was very good. I’d recommend it.”
