Violin Instructor Enjoys the Musical Combination of East and West at Shen Yun

December 28, 2017

“Beautiful pageantry. The dancers are very gifted, very much so. It was very nice effects, beautiful effects.”

“I was particularly fascinated by the two stringed instrument—the erhu, a very gifted player. Very, very nicely done. It was very, very nice.”

“[The instrumentation] is quite beautiful. And it’s interesting to see the interwoven factor of the Western and Eastern.”

“There is a resonance in the devotional aspect of it most definitely. I think it’s very difficult when you’re not able to practice your religion freely. You know a lot of the things they spoke of tonight had to do with the fact that you can’t do this in communist China, and that saddens me because you should be able to freely express whatever religion you are devoted to absolutely.”
