CHARLESTON, W.Va.—Mr. Rich Granberry, a video producer from Charleston, WV, and Ms. Barb Brady attended the Shen Yun Performing Arts closing show in Charleston, on Wednesday March 12.
“It was amazing. It was beautiful. The artistry!” he said.
He was intrigued by “the gentleness of the Chinese people … I wasn’t aware of how gentle and spiritual the Chinese people actually were.”
According to the Shen Yun website, “Shen Yun presents colorful and exhilarating performances of classical Chinese dance and music. A performance by Shen Yun is a presentation of traditional Chinese culture as it once was: a study in grace, wisdom, and the virtues distilled from the five millennia of Chinese civilization.”
Mr. Granberry was amazed by what he saw on stage and said, “The show was very well-choreographed. The music was right on. I thought it was very professional, and very well-done.”
Mr. Granberry has been fortunate to travel the world filming and video production. He felt the New York based Shen Yun offered more than entertainment. The mini dramas brought myths and legends to life on stage giving insight into Chinese culture.
Mr. Granberry appreciated this aspect. “I learned a lot about Chinese culture, a lot of things I didn’t know and was unaware of, so it was fascinating,” he said.
