Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra 
Music from 5,000 years of civilization--Original works capture the spirit of ancient China

In ancient China, artists believed that to create transcendent music they needed to improve their hearts and find harmony with the heavens. These beliefs gave their music a power and depth that was rooted in Chinese culture. Now, Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra is reviving these traditions in an unparalleled concert that highlights the beauty of Chinese instruments within the grandeur of a full Western orchestra. 

Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra will perform highlights from its vast repertoire of original works inspired by 5,000 years of Chinese civilization, including Creation, Dancing for the Divine, The Emperor Journeys to the Moon, and many more. The concert will also feature classics from Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Dvorák, and more, along with several of the world's top Chinese vocalists.

Performance Timing: Part One - 45 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 45 min.
