Shen Yun Orchestra ‘Philosophy that Penetrates and Embraces all the Cultures,’ Says Pianist

“This is my first time to this kind of performance, Chinese music with the symphony orchestra and I found it very, very interesting, very pleasant, very educational, very spiritual, high quality.”
 

“I would say philosophy that penetrates and embraces all the cultures by the way—it was a great pleasure for me.”
 

“I found it very much educational and elevating, … the way we look at people, the way we perceive them—I liked it a lot. Thank you so much.”
 

“You understand that I believe truly that, the same way as languages, the more languages we speak and know they expand our horizons of how we see the world and how we understand it, and how much we want to be in peace with everyone. The same way ethnic music of different ethnicities expands to the same degree and reaches this same purposes of what we live for and what we enjoy in life.”
 

“You know, I think any good music is elevating, but the Chinese music of this kind that I heard today is more than elevating. It just cleans your mind you know it brings you good spirits— like you eat organic food. This music is organic food for the brain by the way, excellent, excellent.”
