U.S. City of Cleveland Officials Proclaim May 29 as ‘Shen Yun Performing Arts Day’

Posted by Author on May 29, 2010

Epoch  Times Staff, May. 29, 2010-

CLEVELAND, Ohio—  City of Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson more than just welcomed Shen Yun Performing Arts to his fine city. He went a step further and publicly proclaimed May 29, 2010 as “Shen Yun Performing Arts Day” in paying homage to the New York-based company.

Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company is scheduled to premier this evening at Cleveland’s Playhouse Square for one show only.

Mr. Jackson was joined by the Mayor of the City of Westlake, Dennis M. Clough, Mayor of Beachwood, Merle S. Gorden and the City of Cleveland’s Council President Martin J. Sweeney in publicly delaring recognition of Shen Yun Performing Arts day.

“It draws on the expression of Chinese classical performance to showcase true traditional Chinese culture, devoid of any elements of Chinese communist culture,” Mr. Jackson said.

Shen Yun is one of three companies currently scheduled to appear on its 2010 World Tour in more than 100 cities performing some 400 shows. The two other companies are touring in Europe and in Australia.

Mr. Jackson appreciated that Shen Yun was brought to Cleveland by the Ohio Oriental Culture Association and Ohio Falun Dafa Association, endorsed by his colleague Mr. Clough “for contributing to our area’s reputation as a cultural center.”

Mr. Clough wished the company “much success in the future as they continue to bring the very best of traditional Chinese culture to our community,” he said.

Shen Yun comprises a group of leading artists who share in a vision of cultural renewal bringing together over 100 of the world’s foremost classically-trained Chinese dancers, choreographers, musicians, vocalists and an orchestra that blends both Western and Chinese instruments using only original composition.

A resolution was passed from the Cleveland city council members to support both mayors in their decision to proclaim May 29 as Shen Yun Performing Arts day.

“Cleveland is extremely honored to be among those cities hosting this phenomenal show which represents a true renaissance of classical Chinese culture,” the council president, Mr. Sweeney said.

Shen Yun has already graced many of the world’s greatest stages, including New York’s Radio City Music Hall, London’s Royal Festival Hall, Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center, and Paris’ Le Palais de Congrès.

United States Senator Sherrod Brown welcomed Shen Yun to Cleveland in a letter.

“This evening’s performance promises to be an unforgettable tribute to the 5,000-year history of Chinese culture,” Mr. Brown said.

He commended both the Cultural and Falun Dafa associations “for bringing this important cultural event filled with music and dance to Cleveland to celebrate Chinese culture as well as entertain, educate, and enrich the audience.

“Please accept my best wishes for an extraordinary evening,” Sen. Brown concluded.
