Toledo Mayor Proclaimes “Shen Yun Day” For the City

Posted by Author on May 15, 2010

By Stephanie Lam, Epoch Times Staff, May 15, 2010 –

TOLEDO, Ohio— New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts, which stopped at Toledo, Ohio on May 14 during its 2010 world tour, impressed the city’s Mayor Michael P. Bell so much that he proclaimed the day as “Shen Yun Day” of the city.

“As Mayor of the City of Toledo, it is my privilege and responsibility to recognize those groups who have made outstanding achievements that reflect on the well-being and growth of the Toledo community and its citizens,” he wrote in the proclamation.

“With a cast of award-winning dancers, a live orchestral accompaniment, elaborate costumes and state-of-the-art digital backdrops; Shen Yun’s performances breathe new life into China’s classical culture. The company also seeks to use the traditional arts as a vehicle to spread a message of hope and beauty to reinvigorate Chinese culture with the values and spirituality that once made it so rich. It is not simply stunning for its artistry but also refreshingly real, heartfelt, probing and original.”

Bell was amazed by soprano Haolan Geng’s song, Reaching the Other Shore, and was among those in a standing ovation when she finished it, before an encore.

The show had a full house and closed with a standing ovation and two curtain calls. The audience clapped several times in the middle of most programs during the show.

During a VIP reception after the show, Bell expressed his appreciation for Shen Yun’s coming to Toledo.

“I hope that we can make the world better by working with you,” he said. “Thank you, very much, for being here.”

The next stop on the Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company US tour is Newark, New Jersey, for three performances at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, May 22-23. ( The Epochtimes)
