Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra Connects the Earth and the Sky

“We had seen [Shen Yun Performing Arts] at the Kennedy Center, the dances, and we loved that. So we thought we had to come today.”
 

“But I really liked the synthesis of the East and West! It’s really expanding. It’s very exciting.”
 

“It’s very spiritual, and at the same time, it’s kind of very grounded. It connects the earth with the sky, somehow. I was just saying to my wife that coming here helps me to be calmer—the calmness.”
 

“My breathing slows down, and my eyes close and I kind-of settle into my seat, and all the worries disappear.”
 

“These sounds are very healing, and I think that’s why we are here on a Sunday afternoon to be calmed and balanced and healed.” 
 

“Very inspiring. To have purpose, to have meaning, to have a sense of why we’re here and our connection with each other. This is essential. This is really essential, I think to live and to relate to each other, and to understand our [mutual] relationship.”
