‘I cried, it’s so beautiful,’ Audience Member Says after Attending Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra

October 12, 2017

“Last year I came and I couldn’t believe [it]. … I think [Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra is] the best, the best in the world. I enjoy it and I’m going to come back next year, and the year after that, until I’m 105.”


“I cried, it’s so beautiful, … it’s touching.”


“I don’t cry because I’m sad. I cry because I feel so happy to be able to hear it.”


“I’m 83 and I have never missed any opportunity to learn more. And when I discovered them last year—this year, I had to get a ticket.”


“I see everything in the positive. … When I came in tonight, it was pouring rain, but I knew once I get inside it would be sunny, warm, and friendly, and that makes me feel good.”
