The sopranos and tenors of Shen Yun sing all-original compositions that are “brimming with philosophical reflection about human life and containing deep layers of meaning,” according to the company’s website.
“The texts go beyond the boundaries of nation, race, and culture, and have been fondly received and appreciated the world over,” it adds. “Some audience members have even expressed that Shen Yun’s vocal pieces are reminiscent of sacred music, calling them ‘hymns.’”
The mission of New York-based Shen Yun is to revive 5,000 years of China’s divinely inspired culture.
“For 5,000 years divine culture flourished in the land of China,” the company’s website states. “Humanity’s treasure was nearly lost, but through breathtaking music and dance, Shen Yun is bringing back this glorious culture.”
