USC Professor: Shen Yun ‘More Than I Expected’

“It’s great, it’s wonderful. I’ve been wanting to see it for years, so I’m thrilled to be here.” 

“Bringing the culture and keeping it alive is so important. I’ve done a lot of studying of Chinese culture, and to get to see this is very special. It adds to what I’ve have read, so it enhances it, which is great.” 

“[The performers] are outstanding—they are very well disciplined, but they seem to be enjoying themselves as well.”

“All the music is great … The music is really relaxing. It has a great melody, and it’s very soothing. I could feel the blood pressure dropping.” 

“[The live orchestra] is perfect.”

“The tenor [sang] a beautiful song, and it spoke to some of the Chinese beliefs, which I appreciated as well.” 

“This is a high-quality performance.” 

“It’s been more than I expected.”
