Doctors Laud Shen Yun

AUSTIN, Texas—Shen Yun Performing Arts entered the second day of its 2015 world tour on Dec. 27 with performances in Austin and Fort Lauderdale in the U.S. and Hamilton in Canada.

Brad Berg, a paediatrician and medical director at McLane Children’s Baylor Scott & White in Round Rock, said he highly enjoyed the afternoon performance at Austin’s Long Center for the Performing Arts.

“Love the colors, love the storyline, love just the energy of the whole thing,” Dr. Berg said.

Gesturing toward his son who accompanied him to the performance, he said the performance offers good educational value as it “brings the past to life, preserving the culture.”

According to Shen Yun’s website, the mission of the New York-based classical Chinese dance and music company is to revive China’s divinely inspired culture.

Dr. Berg said he also enjoyed seeing the spiritual side of Chinese culture through the performance.

“It is a great performance to come to—lots of colors, lots of energy, just very well done.”
