Foundation President: ‘Only at Shen Yun’ Can You Hear Perfect Harmonization of Eastern and Western Instruments

“It was awesome.”
 

“[While listening, I felt like] a higher being. … And it is so nice to feel the intensity, and only music does that. No matter what else is going on in your life, when you have music in life, when you have especially beautiful music like what we have just heard, it is an awesome opportunity to be able to reflect on oneself, and our relationship with God.”
 

“It is obviously a stirring event. The beauty and majesty is what I anticipated since I have been to prior concerts.”
 

“The most important thing is that the music is inspired by 5,000 years of traditional, and the traditions of China, and the beautiful, spiritual beings that all people are, especially the Chinese. And it is terrible that they are being repressed right now.”
 

“The music is beautiful. It is a tremendous feeling. The music is a tremendous feeling when you hear the synthesis of the Western and the Chinese musical instruments. And only here, only here, at this concert, the Shen Yun concert, can you hear the perfect integration and harmony, the harmonization of these musical instruments. And I strongly encourage anybody, who has not heard this synthesis of the music, that you have to listen. You have to come and hear for yourself.”
 

“It brings out an intensity of how people should be able to live. And it is the power of music that brings us closer towards our spiritual being. And that’s really the point.”
