Shen Yun Combines East and West Music Very Delicately

“[Combining Eastern and Western classical instruments is] so beautiful. It merges so beautifully with the rest of the music, and the Chinese tradition is fabulous. We love it. … It combines very delicately. It’s fabulous.”

“Even if the music is sometimes exciting, it has a very calming effect.”

“I found the opening piece was a shocker in a very positive sense. … I’m very impressed with the Chinese traditional instruments—I’m very impressed that everything is so crisp. It’s beautiful; I’m speechless.”
