Yang Tsu-Ying, president of Sonavox and former district governor of Rotary International District 3500 took in the New York-based presentation with his wife and friends.
“I have seen many performances around the world but have not seen anything like Shen Yun. Its performance tells us everything about the essence of 5,000 years of Chinese culture, fantastic!” said Mr. Yang.
He was in awe of the Shen Yun Orchestra’s performance as well. “They play so well, amazing,” he said.
And, just as spectacular, were the movements of the dancers, Mr. Yang added. “They must have been through rigorous training and continuous rehearsals,” he said.
Mr. Yang noted how the artists on stage were choreographed to match the ever-changing animated hi-tech backdrop scenes. “Shen Yun’s dedication and ingenuity presented themselves. Good work!” Mr. Yang praised.
He was excited to hear virtuoso Qi Xiaochun’s solo performance playing the ancient two-stringed instrument, the erhu. “It’s my favorite, perhaps it’s my special interest in erhu. I really cannot believe that anyone can play erhu so well.”
Mr. Yang added that his wife was also captivated by the entire Shen Yun performance. “She’s been talking about what a marvelous and brilliant performance it is. The voices of the vocalists are phenomenal, the very best way to promote Chinese culture,” he said.
“In every piece there is hard work and every one of them was brilliant. The training of the artists, the musical instruments, the stage props, and all the preparation work, shows Shen Yun’s devotion to the performance. It is definitely a great success.”
In the end, Mr. Yang expressed his desire to see the show again, “Next time Shen Yun comes to Taiwan, I will invite friends to see this outstanding cultural art achievement.”
