SYSO will perform highlights from its vast repertoire of original works and also feature classics from Berlioz, Dvořák, and Glinka, as well as several of the world’s top Chinese vocalists. Shen Yun’s musical compositions blend the spirit and distinctiveness of Chinese music with the precision and power of a Western orchestra. Ancient instruments like the erhu, pipa, and a range of Chinese percussion instruments lead the melody on top of full strings, woodwinds, and brass.
The idea of using Western orchestral arrangement to present China’s 5,000 years of culture and music is new and it’s sure to open up new horizons in the world of Western classical music. In Chinese, Shen Yun means “the beauty of divine beings dancing.” Shen Yun’s mission is to revive the five millennia of China’s divinely inspired culture. Experience this groundbreaking new music and let Shen Yun melodies delight your heart and soul.
