“It’s nice to be able to see what all of Chinese culture has been through [over] thousands of years, and [Shen Yun] is a good educational and cultural experience.”

“I think that the music is very touching. As a music major, it comes to my heart that they have a live orchestra to play, and so you get the whole feel of what the atmosphere is like.”

History of Shen Yun

In 2006, Chinese artists who wanted to revive China’s authentic traditional culture and share it with the world established Shen Yun Performing Arts in New York. Shen Yun has since grown to five companies that tour the world, performing in over 150 theaters each year. 


The Shen Yun Orchestra blends the sounds of East and West, with traditional Chinese instruments like the suona, gong, erhu, and pipa combined with violins, clarinets, flutes, and French horns. The Western orchestra serves as a foundation for the Chinese instruments, which carry the melody and also infuse the music with its distinctive flavor.  ​
