New York Banker Ranks Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra as One of Top in the World

October 15, 2017

“We had heard about this [orchestra] on numerous occasions, and we felt that we couldn’t miss it, and it’s lived up to our expectations. It’s absolutely—the sound that comes from … from the orchestra is spectacular. I would say that this is probably the best orchestra that I have ever heard and I have heard quite a few” 

“We actually tried to move our fingers as fast as [the violinist] was. It was impossible. I’m saying ‘Oh—how can she be doing that?’”

“When [the conductor] brought the strings up to a crescendo, I felt it right in my chest. It was just wonderful. … They all were terrific.”

“I would rate this right up there at number one with the best in the world—this is wonderful.”
