Governor of South Australia, Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce AC CSC RANR, stated, “I am pleased to extend my warmest greetings to everyone attending the performance of Shen Yun this evening.
Shen Yun is a not for profit performing arts group which aims to revive the authentic Chinese culture through world class classical Chinese dance and music performance.
From our earliest day of settlement, our identity and our day to day lives have been influenced by a wonderful cultural diversity. Our state has been a leader in the adoption of multiculturalism as a policy with which to build a cohesive and harmonious society.
I am sure tonight’s Shen Yun performance will add to our state’s rich cultural tapestry.”
Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company opens at Adelaide Festival Centre for four performances on April 19.
