Falun Dafa Association of Washington, D.C. presents:
Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra

The Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra, which made its Carnegie Hall debut in 2012, is part of the internationally acclaimed Shen Yun Performing Arts.

In Chinese, Shen Yun means "the beauty of divine beings dancing." Indeed, Shen Yun's mission is to revive the five millennia of China's divinely inspired culture. Accentuating the beauty of ancient Chinese instruments amidst the grandeur of a Western symphony, Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra draws on cherished ancient melodies and delightful styles to create a brand new yet wonderfully familiar experience.

The Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra will perform highlights from its vast repertoire of original works, including Sleeves of Grace, Courtyard Elegance, Scholarly Aspirations, The Power of Compassion, and many more. The concert will also feature classics from Rimsky-Korsakoff, Tchaikovsky, and Sarasate's Zigeunerweisen, as well as several of the world's top Chinese vocalists. The program is subject to change.

Performance Timing: 1 hour, 45 minutes, with one intermission.
