California Officials Welcome Shen Yun to the Bay Area and Beyond

U.S. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi and four other members of congress joined with over 40 other elected officials from the San Francisco area in welcoming Shen Yun Performing arts to San Francisco. The company whose mission is to revive China’s traditional culture will offer seven performances Jan. 5-10 at the War Memorial Opera House.

“I am pleased to welcome you back to the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California” writes Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “Your mission to revive traditional Chinese dance and music enhances our knowledge of China’s cultural history” continues Ms. Pelosi’s letter.

“Thank you for your commitment to bring traditional Chinese arts and culture to the Bay Area. You enrich our society with all you do” writes Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (CA 18th District). Doug Lamalfa (CA 1st District), Doris Matsui (CA 6th District), Mark DeSaulnier (CA 11th District) also wrote welcome letters.
