‘The violin solo was amazing,’ Says Concertgoer of Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra

October 23, 2017

“[Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra has] a nice variety of music. I like that each piece also has a big, dynamic range and different changes in moods.”

“The violin solo was amazing. [The soloist’s] fingers were a blur, and it was really, really impressive, and especially in the middle of the solo, she had one mood and then had to change the whole mood of the piece on her own, and it was a great transition. … I really was impressed by that.”

“The ancient instruments that were played [stand out]. … It’s neat to see them blended in concert with the more traditional classic European instruments.”

“The voices of the instruments stand out because they have this quality where they pierce without being unpleasant, so it stands out a lot, but it also is able to blend into the rest of the instruments, which is unexpected.”
