As a world traveler you know you have seen a lot. But when was the last time you attended a symphony concert that received a standing ovation lasting longer than 10 min?
When was the last time you listened to a symphony that was so profoundly beautiful and moving it captivated all your senses, and led you into, what, some would say, was a realm of heaven?
And when was the last time you attended a single symphony concert that was conducted by 4 famous conductors ? Or listened to beautiful ancient Chinese melodies played by a grand western symphony? (Come to think of it, most people don't actually know there's a western symphony orchestra out there that even includes classical Chinese music instruments).
Well it's time to believe it, because it's all true.
World travelers should know the Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra is just such a symphony and it offers answers to all your questions. This fall, world travelers in San Francisco will have a chance to witness the arrival of a new symphonic tradition. It's a night not to be missed!
