Shen Yun Leaves You Invigorated

February 19, 2017

“The music bridges gaps so that the sense of the harmonics and the way that the musical pieces complement the dancers’ artistry is transcendent. … You can see cultural pieces and you can see classical music, but to actually bring the rhythms and the harmonies of Chinese music is very difficult to achieve in the U.S. environment, and to see it done this well is wonderful.”

“It’s heartening. As we look at this time in our lives when there’s so many barriers, culturally, within the U.S. and outside, between historic culture and modern expression of governments—to touch into some of those themes, it’s enlightening, it’s enlivening. The ability to feel that connection to some stronger cultural or human element, it’s a fun night. You come out feeling invigorated.”
