Members of the group will demonstrate the traditional arts of Chinese calligraphy and origami. Chinese tea and pastry will be served! Please let us know if you'll be attending so that we have enough refreshments for all, by stopping by the Library or calling the main desk at 781-631-1481.
Shen Yun Performing Arts is abased in New York and was established in 2006 by a group of overseas Chinese artists with the mission of reviving 5,000 years of divinely inspired Chinese culture. About 90 artists embarked on Shen Yun’s tour in 2007 in the first year, including a dance troupe, an orchestra, solo singers and musicians, emcees, and production staff. By 2009, Shen Yun had already grown to three performance troupes and orchestras of comparable size. Today, Shen Yun counts many winners of international dance and vocal competitions among its artists, and the orchestras include many musicians from world-renowned symphonies and conservatories.
