Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra ‘Just Made You Feel Good,’ Says Retired Professor

“It was a very excellent performance. I enjoyed the performance greatly, it was wonderful. The music is beautiful, it makes you think about the history of China which I don’t know a whole lot about; I know a little bit, but I don’t know huge amounts. It was very, very beautiful; beautifully done.”

“The history, … also the way the music is described in terms of bringing you to the garden—there are reminiscences of dancers taking you to the creation scene, and demonstrating all of the different emotions that go through people’s minds. I loved the performance.”

“It was very melodic, and also just made you feel good. The mixture [of Western and Eastern instruments] was wonderful. The musicians are wonderful.”
