Examiner of Royal Conservatory of Music Lauds Shen Yun’s Pianist and Musicians

January 4, 2018

“It was very moving. The pianist, the accompanist [for the erhu soloist]—she did a beautiful job. The erhu is spectacular. It’s just beautiful.”

“Everything was nice, the colours, the backdrop and how the characters go in and out was phenomenal.”

“[The live orchestra] was a treat! Nice to have that. And they’re very good, very nice, clean sound, nice dynamic. It was well done.”

“[The conductor] did a great job. He kept them together nice and cleanly, with the nice louds and softs in a dynamic that made it interesting.”

“[Regarding the combination of Chinese and Western instruments], it worked. It was beautiful. It blends well.”

“[The coordination between the live music and the stage performance was] very tight together, very good. Their musical choices reflect the actors and the dancing, and even when the [soprano] sang her solos—beautiful words, good message all throughout.”

“If you haven’t seen it, I would definitely check it out. It was quite a beautiful experience today. I’m really glad we came down.”
