The governor of Oklahoma, Mary Fallin, has written sending her best wishes to Shen Yun Performing Arts.
Fallin writes, “on behalf of the state of Oklahoma, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to the 2016 Shen Yun 30-country World Tour performing at Oklahoma City’s Civic Center Music Hall December 23rd and 24th, 2016.”
She also states that it is an honor to have Shen Yun here, and “please accept my best wishes for a successful and memorable event.”
Shen Yun performed two shows in Oklahoma City in 2014, and the audience was deeply moved.
Vince Orza, dean of the Meinders School of Business at Oklahoma City University, and president and CEO of KSBI Television, really appreciates Shen Yun’s brining of classical Chinese dance.
“The grace, athleticism, spectacular orchestra, beautiful costumes and color, it’s just a great introduction to the history of China,” Mr. Orza said.
On Dec. 22 Shen Yun will start its global debut in Houston, where it will perform 12 shows in a run through Jan. 2. Presidential candidate Ted Cruz, the junior U.S. Senator from Texas, sent a letter extending a warm welcome to Shen Yun in advance of its visit to Houston.
The Epoch Times considers Shen Yun Performing Arts the significant cultural event of our time and has covered audience reactions since the company’s inception in 2006.
