Our Big News for 2017
We’ve spent months working hard on an all-new program, with new choreography, new music, new costumes, new backdrops… But with the 2017 touring season fast approaching, you won’t be surprised to hear that we have more big announcements to make!
We already had some big news this year. The Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra tour came to a close last month. As you might already know, this year was the first time the Symphony Orchestra journeyed to the East, performing an entire tour in Taiwan and Japan.
To quote our conductor, Milen Nachev, “The response from the audience in Taiwan was like it was a rock concert. On the final day, we had two performances and we concluded with four encores each,” he says. “Eight encores in one day!”
And now we have more news:
A New Member of the Shen Yun Family
As our avid fans know, Shen Yun is celebrating its tenth birthday this year, and within that short span we have grown rapidly from one dance company to four, all of which tour the world simultaneously. But we thought to ourselves: Why stop there?
And so today, we are proud to introduce our fifth company, the Shen Yun North America Company!
Like Shen Yun’s four other companies, this group includes some 80 dancers, musicians, singers, emcees, and technical crew. Among them are stars you might recognize, like Tony Xue, Steven Wang, and Rachael Yu Ming Bastick, as well as many new faces. The new company’s orchestra will be conducted by Chia-Chi Lin.
Our growth wouldn’t be possible if it were not for our supporters and fans who come see the show. On behalf of the Shen Yun family, we want to thank you, once again, from the bottom of our hearts.
And we know that our new performers, those who will be touring with Shen Yun for the very first time, can’t wait to meet all of you out there in the audience! Tour starts in late December (see schedule).
As new countries and cities are announced, you can be the first in the know. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for updates on all things Shen Yun.
This upcoming season’s ticketing information is available here. See you soon!
