Company CEO: ‘In One Word, Shen Yun Was Peace’

“Absolutely stunning. It was everything that I could’ve possibly imagined it would be. It was perfect.”

“I was watching their feet and I was watching how they were doing their turns and holding their hands. I just have a deep appreciation for the amount of work that they’ve actually put into their performance and their art.”

“I just loved every minute of it. It was stunning, absolutely stunning.”

“They [the stories] were very eye-opening. … It was very emotional. It gave me chills. It made me feel. It was very emotional. I can’t explain it, but a lot of emotions and a lot of feeling. It was beautiful.”

“Peace. In one word, Shen Yun was peace. Everything was peaceful. It was a movement to be better. It is an inspiration to be better.”

“The music was incredibly moving … It’s [erhu] phenomenal. When the commentators [emcees] were saying that it had so many different emotions that it could portray, they were right. I felt every single one of them … I just was envisioning so many different things during that piece, and it was one of the most magical, musical moments that I think I’ve experienced thus far.”
