Shen Yun Brings ‘a Message of Hope and Compassion’

May 8, 2017

“It was very moving, very moving, very deep. The message was wonderful—[a message] of hope and compassion.”
“I cried. [The piece ‘Boundless Compassion’] moved me. It was very moving, extremely moving.”


“We can never stop spreading love and hope and compassion through the world. We can’t. We just can’t. … Everybody in this world needs to practice peace and compassion.”


“[The performers] are reconnecting to their spiritual path. It’s a beautiful, beautiful part of what they do and to be denied that in their own country and to have that try to be eradicated from their own country is deeply saddening.”


“[The erhu piece] was mesmerizing. It just drew you right into that instrument, totally.”


“People at the school where I work knew that I was coming and they were very excited because they’ve seen a lot of advertising but I don’t think they truly understood the meaning of the entire performance, and I can present that message.”
