Painter Franca Borgia attended the Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra performance at Roy Thomson Hall on Oct. 11, 2017. (NTD Television)

“I am profoundly moved. ... Shen Yun takes classical music to the next level.”


“It was done with a lot of sensitivity for the different qualities, the different emotions that are transmitted in the music, and the different energy levels in the music. There is peace and tranquility. There is power. .... And it purifies you inside. It gets you centered.”


“I would tell them [my friends] that if they have not seen or heard it yet, they will be surprised to find a new shade of classical music that is not outdated, but very fresh and vivid.”


“They [the Chinese melodies] are integrated with a lot of elegance into the Western harmonies.”
