Musician on Shen Yun’s Orchestra: ‘It never let you down’

“Coming tonight to this performance was absolutely fabulous. There was so much that goes into it.”

“It was so good to see this combination of just fabulous dancing and the background shots that they incorporated into everything, and, of course, the music. All those three things just blended together so fantastically.”

“Being a professional trombonist, when I hear the trombone player in the orchestra playing his little solo parts, now and then, I said, ‘Oh, good! I’m glad to hear the trombone like that.’”

“You are listening to a so-called classical orchestra, which is fine, which is great, so combining that with the style for the oriental music … it never let you down. It never bored you.”
