Exquisite Chinese instruments meld with a grand Western orchestra in a perfect harmony of East and West. New York-based Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra blends the two musical traditions in what critics call a breakthrough in classical music. Western strings, percussion, woodwinds, and brass accentuate the melodies of soul-stirring ancient Chinese instruments like the plucked pipa and two-stringed erhu.
Part of the renowned Shen Yun Performing Arts classical Chinese dance company that wows sold-out audiences around the world, Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra enchants concertgoers with its vast repertoire drawing upon five millennia of Chinese culture along with beloved Western masterpieces.
