Philadelphians Praise Shen Yun

April 30, 2014

PHILADELPHIA—One of the key reasons audiences find Shen Yun to be different from other performances they’ve seen is that for many of them, it is their first exposure to traditional Chinese culture, and classical Chinese dance.

At the heart of a Shen Yun performance is classical Chinese dance, accompanied by a live orchestra with both Eastern and Western instruments. It also includes lively folk dances, elegantly flowing costumes, spirited musical soloists, and an interactive digital backdrop that completes the experience.

Here are some of the audiences’ responses from the performance at Philadelphia’s Merriam Theater, April 25 – 27.
