Canada Mining Company Chair Enjoys ‘Spectacular’ Shen Yun Show

Posted by Author on March 27, 2010


VANCOUVER, British Columbia— Vancouverites gave a warm welcome to Shen Yun Performing Arts at its opening show at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Thursday night.

Among the audience were Bill Meeks and his wife, Julie, who both thoroughly enjoyed the show.

“It was spectacular; the themes, the scenes, the beauty, the dancing, the precision—just the glorious sights,” said Mr. Meeks.

Mr. Meeks is chairman of Pacific Booker Minerals, a mining company whose head office is in Vancouver. The couple, who live in Whistler, B.C., just returned from a month in China.

Speaking during the intermission, Mr. Meeks said he thought the Shen Yun orchestra, with its blend of Western and Chinese instruments, was “excellent. I think the music’s marvellous.”

New York-based Shen Yun has three companies currently touring on three continents. The Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company is touring western Canada.

“I just thought it was marvellous and I’m very impressed with all the women, they all seem to be the same height, and the men all seem to be the same height, and their athletic ability is fabulous,” said Mrs. Meeks.

Having been “a bit of a gymnast” herself in the past, Mrs Meeks said she especially appreciated the “well trained” dancers.

At the core of the Shen Yun shows are spectacular large-scale dances that include classical Chinese dance as well as ethnic and folk dances.

“This was Olympic-standard dancing. Superb,” said Mr. Meeks. “I’d recommend anyone who’s interested in dancing or interested in Asia to come and see it.”

He added that there were two aspects of the show that particularly impressed him—“the quality of the singing and the precision of the dancing. I mean it’s just like watching everybody doing exactly the same thing at exactly the same moment. And certainly the physical movements are exceptional.” (by The Epochtimes)

Shen Yun Vocals and Dance Impress Vancouver Film Producer

Posted by Author on March 27, 2010


VANCOUVER, Canada— The singers of Shen Yun Performing Arts captured the heart and imagination of Trina Lopez when they performed at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre Thursday night.

“It is so poetic,” said Ms. Treenee Lopez, a film producer and the president of Trenz Media.

“I thought ‘oh my gosh it is so nice, the wording—the meaning and what it’s trying to symbolize.’”

Shen Yun is a classical Chinese dance and music company offering large-scale choreographed dances accompanied by a full orchestra, as well as a complement of Chinese soloists.

Ms. Lopez thoroughly enjoyed the entire show.

“I am so impressed with the colours, with the costumes, with the performers—everybody. I could not believe how they were floating—they floated—I don’t know how did they do that.”

“But of course they had a lot of practice and I understand it is a lot of work,” she added. “But what really impressed me most was actually the singers.”

Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company boasts Guimin Guan, one of China’s most celebrated tenors, singing Lighting the Way. A recipient of numerous awards and international acclaim, Mr. Guan’s voice has been featured in over 50 movies and television shows.

Other singers include Chinese national award winner and soprano Feng Ming, tenor Tian Ge, and soprano Rachael Bastick……. (more details from The Epochtimes)
