Shen Yun Performing Arts Reviews: Dr. Sarah Parks

“It’s a very strong dramatic sound. I was very moved by the lyrics. That was something I did not expect to see in an event like this. The concept of compassion and the concept of ownership of our own actions, that was rather an unexpected surprise. I really appreciated it. It was a great poem to hear... The orchestra is really exciting. My husband plays french horn and I’m a singer and a choral person, so it’s fun for me hear the piano and baritone, but the orchestra is exceptional, and it’s fun to hear the ethnic instruments as well, as part of the blend of the music. We've really been enjoying that. ”
