Federal Member for Oxley, The Hon. Bernie Ripoll M.P. welcomed the New York-based Shen Yun in a letter to wish them well for performances in Queensland and Australia-wide.

“I would also like to acknowledge Shen Yun’s contribution to the revival of the traditional Chinese culture and the promotion of Chinese and Western cultural exchange,” Mr. Ripoll said.

Mr. Ripoll also presented Shen Yun a Certificate of Recognition for bringing its 2015 classical Chinese dance and music production to Queensland.

Federal Member for Moreton, The Hon. Graham Perrett M.P in his written greeting, also welcomed the Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra as well as the world-renowned dance and music company.

Mr. Perrett considered Australia unique in its “breadth and balance of cultures” in the world and he commended Shen Yun’s contribution to reviving China’s authentic traditions and promoting Eastern and Western cultural exchange.

“A Shen Yun performance features the world’s foremost classically trained dancers, a unique orchestra blending East and West, and dazzling animated backdrops—together creating one spectacular performance.”

As for the Karawatha Ward Cr. Kim Marx who wrote his congratulations to the Queensland organisers for presenting Shen Yun 2015 World Tour, he added his comments too.

“Shen Yun also features magnificent hand-made original costumes, state-of-the-art digital backdrops and masterful choreography.”

And he highly recommended Shen Yun’s performance and expressed gratitude for their contribution to the revival of traditional Chinese culture and the promotion of Chinese and Western cultural exchange.

Gold Coast Councillor Dawn Crichlow OAM in her words of welcome said she knew “the magic of this performance will remain with those who attend for many years to come,” she said. “We are a welcoming city with a multi-cultural past and a dynamic future.”

When Shen Yun takes centre stage Tuesday evening, the symphonic sounds of the orchestra, thunderous drumming, vocalists’ powerful voices singing in bel canto opera style and solo musicians, QPAC’s Concert Hall will come alive with Chinese classical dance and music.

New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts has four touring companies that perform around the world. For more information, visit ShenYunPerformingArts.org.
