    A feast of music, blending East and West, was successfully presented by the Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra at the landmark Boston Symphony Hall on Oct. 4, moving the audience to tears, and receiving a 10-minute standing ovation.

    “It took away all the negative news that we get and brought you into a place that was just enjoyable,” said Mr. Bowes, a regular patron of the Boston Symphony Hall. Mr. Keyes, a violinist, said the performance left  peaceful images in his mind: “From water, and a field, and grasses, and apple blossoms, and cherry blossoms, just a natural kind of beauty that I have in my mind as I close my eyes and listen to the music.”

    This is the music played by angels!

    Last year, my friends and I made our plans too late, and there were no tickets left. This year, luckily for us, the Shen Yun Orchestra is playing in Chicago. As you can imagine, we just can’t wait for the night!

    If you’re interested in attending a performance, check upcoming venues at their website. Also, Shen Yun will have another global tour soon of its dance companies. Don’t miss out!
