Shen Yun’s Orchestra Is So Good, It’s Hard to Believe It’s Live

“The orchestra is fantastic, and actually I would like to be sitting in front here, so I could be looking at the music.”
 

“I thought [the orchestra] was maybe radio or some sort of playback. But they’re playing this whole thing [live].”
 

“What’s hard is to have the Chinese instruments, like the erhu, … [with] orchestra tuning around that, that’s hard. I’m a music composition major. Getting an orchestra just be in tune in the first place is just one thing, but to be in tune with an expanded orchestra with some possibly micro-tuning there, that means the notes between the notes, it’s fantastic, absolutely love it.”
