Harpist Drawn to Hear Shen Yun Music

“I enjoyed it a lot. I wanted to hear the erhu because I’ve only seen it, I haven’t really heard it. So I specifically came to hear that. I’m … a harpist.

 

“What really drew me to [see Shen Yun] was the idea that music is medicine. So that was very potent. That was what drew me to the show was that idea. … That’s why I wanted to hear the erhu.”

 

“I thought it [the Shen Yun Orchestra] harmonized well. The arrangements were excellent.”

 

“I don’t know that much about China so I liked learning about the periods, the fantasy, the dynasties. I really liked the folk dances too, to see something that was traditional Chinese.”
