Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra Is ‘Food for your Soul’

“The concert was amazing. It was beautiful. It was like taking us to another dimension. You experience the past, the present and the future through the music and that’s exactly what I got from the concert.”

“It was calm and it was beautiful. … Often you get moments where the music is building up and when you hear the Chinese instruments, it calmed me down. So the stress that you have from everyday life, it just takes it away from you.”

“This concert was like food for your soul. It’s not just coming and listening to it. It’s food. It’s necessity. That’s something you need to have once in awhile just to take you out of your real life and put you somewhere else.”

“[To the artists] Continue what you’re doing. You’re a great, great inspiration for us and we come for you. Thank you very much for your hard work.”
