Musician Enjoys the East and West in Shen Yun Performance

“[The erhu player] was a real virtuoso. She was really incredible … Very expressive. A lot of emotion came out of what she was playing. She just had complete command of the instrument. And being a musician, I can appreciate that.”

“The Western instruments kind of provided the background and the body. And then Chinese instruments really added a melodic element and kind of gave it a more of a Chinese flavor to it.”

“I think it is hard to put into words … It is just the overall beauty of the whole performance, and how it touches you.”
