NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Shen Yun Performing Arts’ orchestra was so on point that composer Andy Rednour almost couldn’t believe it was a full orchestra at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) on Feb. 15.
“Everything was really perfect, I thought,” said Mr. Rednour.
“The dancing, the colors, but the orchestra played so finely and they danced so well too, to the rhythms,” Mr. Rednour said.
The New York based company performs classical Chinese dance and ethnic and folk dances from China’s many regions and ethnicities.
“Timing and the colors were brilliant, the lights. I liked some of the techniques, the twisting techniques that they did, a lot of great stuff in there,” Mr. Rednour said.
Classical Chinese dance includes difficult tumbling and flipping techniques and systematic training, making it the most comprehensive dance system in the world alongside ballet, the emcees explained.
Ms. Micho Szalo attended the performance with Mr. Rednour, and said she enjoyed what Shen Yun’s digital backdrop added to the performance.
“I enjoyed it very much; especially the big screen background and people came up from the big screen. It was great,” Ms. Szalo said of the interactive quality of the animated screen.
