Today’s update of Shen Yun Performing Arts’ first show on 2nd of January, 2010 at Detroit Opera House in Michigan is by its sponsor Sound of Hope Radio Network. I’m Catherine Hennessy. Our staff reporter interviewed audience member Chris Mark. Chris has brought his wife and their young son and daughter with him to this unforgettable show _ Shen Yun. Chris is an orchestra conductor for Huron High School at Ann Arbor, Michigan. A school with high reputation of music department and its orchestral performances. As a musician, Chris has identified the Asian Pentatonic scale performed by Shen Yun’s live orchestra although this orchestra is in combination of eastern and western instruments. Pentatonic scale is the keys of all black keys on piano. If not just played the black keys then play any key to begin with a pattern of whole step, whole step, one and a half steps, whole step, one and a half steps. Or another pattern like this: whole step, one and a half steps, whole step, whole step, one and a half steps. Try it and you will savor the Asian flavor of Pentatonic scale music. Pentatonic scale music is very soulful and characristic as you may have already known.
Let’s now listen to Chris Mark share his impressions of his first Shen Yun experience except his zero understanding of divine messeges conveyed by Shen Yun.
Shen Yun has started its 2010 global tour since December last year.
