‘The very best’: Professor Inspired by Shen Yun

“It was awe-inspiring, just totally inspiring—the very best in dance, the very best that I’ve ever heard in music, the very best in choreography and planning. I thought it was A-level, just A-level, totally.”

“Very impressed [with the music]. Very impressed with the diversity of the music, the instruments that we Westerners have never heard before or have heard rarely. It was just delightful.”

“[Erhu soloist Xiaochun Qi] was superb! I have never heard a soloist like her. She filled the whole room with her song and her presence.”

“[I’m] feeling uplifted, sort of happier because of [seeing the show]. Glad I came.”
