Art was meant to uplift, bringing joy and renewal to those who created and experienced it. Today, Shen Yuns artists follow in this noble tradition, incor porating study of traditional culture, meditation and a mindful lifestyle into their rigorous daily training. This spiritual connec tion is the heart behind each dance movement and each mu sical note. It is why audiences feel there is something different about Shen Yun, something deeply heartening that continues resounding long after the performance. THE SHEN YUN SHOW The Shen Yun show is a fusion of classical arts with modern appeal. As one audience member put it, Its like a fashion show, opera, concert, and dance performance all rolled into one. The passion of the artists spurs them to bring all these elements together into one extraordinary experience. CLASSICAL CHINESE DANCE Classical Chinese dance as audiences see in Shen Yun shows is a vast dance system tempered over thousands of years. It is one way in which 5,000 years of Chinese culture have been passed down and retained. It is a dance form built on profound traditional aesthetics. Richly expressive, it portrays personalities and feelings with unparalleled clarity, depicting any scene in a strikingly vivid way. THE SHEN YUN ORCHESTRA The Shen Yun Performing Arts Orchestra masterfully blends two of the worlds greatest classical music traditions, Chinese and Western. Ancient Chinese instruments such as the soulstirring erhu and the delicate pipa, lead the melody on top of a full Western orchestra, creating a fresh, glorious sound. EXQUISITE COSTUMES Apparel has always been an essential part of Chinas five-mil lennia-old culture, and Shen Yun Performing Arts brings this heritage to life on stage. From radiant golden-hued Tang Dy nasty gowns to elegant Manchu chopine shoes, each costume is designed and tailored with meticulous care. STUNNING BACKDROPS Shen Yuns breathtaking dynamic backdrops bring classical Chinese dance into the 21st century, adding visual depth and grandeur. Each backdrop is custom designed to exactly match the costumes, storyline, lighting, and even choreography of each dance. rfffnfbbr ntbffffffb ntrbtbnttbb ffrfrffb fbrrtfnfrbb rttttbnnffbnbbbb nfrfrnrnfrf rtttREVIVING 5000 YEARS OF DIVINELY INSPIRED CULTURE ALL-NEW 2014 SHOW WITH LIVE ORCHESTRA frnf ARCHIVE PHOTOS BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE OBSERVER UCF quarterback Blake Bortles left, and running back Storm Johnson announced their impending departure from the Knights football team ahead of their senior years.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Jan. 9, 2014 | Page 13 Im not big on making predications, but the forecast for the existing homes market in Orange and Seminole coun ties looks good as we come off a year encouraging numbers. Orange and Seminole counties can expect more of the same in 2014, although a lot depends on a slow recovering and un predictable economy. Heres a brief look at what I see ahead. Home Values: Prices will quarter and should begin to gather some momentum in the second and third quarters. Overall I think we can expect to see an annual appreciation of 4-6 percent. The good news is the median price of homes, which I feel is the most accurate measure of tracking housing market values over a period of time, was $155,000 in 2013, up 24 percent over 2012. Home Sales: Based on the way things have been tracking over the past 24 months, I think we can expect to see sales up 1 to 2 percent over those in 2013 as more properties come on the market and a larger number of pending sales close. Mortgage Rates: Rates for to inch up, perhaps hitting and surpass ing 5 percent. The increases will not be enough to dampen sales, but will fuel demand as buyers feel a sense of urgency to get in the market. On Janu ary 3, local interest rates were still quite affordable: 4.2 percent for a 30-year was a 3.6-month supply of existing homes on the market on January 3. This supply level will hold prices steady or perhaps result in slightly higher prices depending on location. We can expect to see a relatively substantial number of properties come on the market in the quarter which will increase inventory and keep prices steady. If, however, in ventory drops below a 3-month supply prices will likely increase. Pending Sales: Last year pending sales were whittled down quite a bit. On January 3, there were 5,234 pending sales which is down from a high of 9,400 in June 2012. Distressed properties represent 71.3 percent of pending sales, down from a high of 83 percent in April 2012. The number of pending sales and short sales should continue to shrink as market conditions continue to improve. Distressed Properties: Fore closures and short sales, which stood at 35 percent of available properties in May 2012, ranged between 23 and 26 percent the last six months of 2013. We still have a challenge in this area but the good news is distressed properties ac counted for only 28.5 percent of homes on the market January 3. While there is still more work to be done, the forecast for the local existing home market in 2014 looks mostly sunny which is a good sign for all of us.

Art was meant to uplift, bringing joy and renewal to those who created and experienced it. Today, Shen Yuns artists follow in this noble tradition, incor porating study of traditional culture, meditation and a mindful lifestyle into their rigorous daily training. This spiritual connec tion is the heart behind each dance movement and each mu sical note. It is why audiences feel there is something different about Shen Yun, something deeply heartening that continues resounding long after the performance. THE SHEN YUN SHOW The Shen Yun show is a fusion of classical arts with modern appeal. As one audience member put it, Its like a fashion show, opera, concert, and dance performance all rolled into one. The passion of the artists spurs them to bring all these elements together into one extraordinary experience. CLASSICAL CHINESE DANCE Classical Chinese dance as audiences see in Shen Yun shows is a vast dance system tempered over thousands of years. It is one way in which 5,000 years of Chinese culture have been passed down and retained. It is a dance form built on profound traditional aesthetics. Richly expressive, it portrays personalities and feelings with unparalleled clarity, depicting any scene in a strikingly vivid way. THE SHEN YUN ORCHESTRA The Shen Yun Performing Arts Orchestra masterfully blends two of the worlds greatest classical music traditions, Chinese and Western. Ancient Chinese instruments such as the soulstirring erhu and the delicate pipa, lead the melody on top of a full Western orchestra, creating a fresh, glorious sound. EXQUISITE COSTUMES Apparel has always been an essential part of Chinas five-mil lennia-old culture, and Shen Yun Performing Arts brings this heritage to life on stage. From radiant golden-hued Tang Dy nasty gowns to elegant Manchu chopine shoes, each costume is designed and tailored with meticulous care. STUNNING BACKDROPS Shen Yuns breathtaking dynamic backdrops bring classical Chinese dance into the 21st century, adding visual depth and grandeur. Each backdrop is custom designed to exactly match the costumes, storyline, lighting, and even choreography of each dance. rfffnfbbr ntbffffffb ntrbtbnttbb ffrfrffb fbrrtfnfrbb rttttbnnffbnbbbb nfrfrnrnfrf rtttREVIVING 5000 YEARS OF DIVINELY INSPIRED CULTURE ALL-NEW 2014 SHOW WITH LIVE ORCHESTRA frnf ARCHIVE PHOTOS BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE OBSERVERUCF quarterback Blake Bortles, left, and running back Storm Johnson announced their impending departure from the Knights football team ahead of their senior years.

Winter Park / Maitland Observer | Thursday, Jan. 9, 2014 | Page 13Im not big on making predications, but the forecast for the existing homes market in Orange and Seminole coun ties looks good as we come off a year encouraging numbers. Orange and Seminole counties can expect more of the same in 2014, although a lot depends on a slow recovering and un predictable economy. Heres a brief look at what I see ahead. Home Values: Prices will quarter and should begin to gather some momentum in the second and third quarters. Overall I think we can expect to see an annual appreciation of 4-6 percent. The good news is the median price of homes, which I feel is the most accurate measure of tracking housing market values over a period of time, was $155,000 in 2013, up 24 percent over 2012. Home Sales: Based on the way things have been tracking over the past 24 months, I think we can expect to see sales up 1 to 2 percent over those in 2013 as more properties come on the market and a larger number of pending sales close. Mortgage Rates: Rates for to inch up, perhaps hitting and surpass ing 5 percent. The increases will not be enough to dampen sales, but will fuel demand as buyers feel a sense of urgency to get in the market. On Janu ary 3, local interest rates were still quite affordable: 4.2 percent for a 30-year was a 3.6-month supply of existing homes on the market on January 3. This supply level will hold prices steady or perhaps result in slightly higher prices depending on location. We can expect to see a relatively substantial number of properties come on the market in the quarter which will increase inventory and keep prices steady. If, however, inventory drops below a 3-month supply prices will likely increase. Pending Sales: Last year pending sales were whittled down quite a bit. On January 3, there were 5,234 pending sales which is down from a high of 9,400 in June 2012. Distressed properties represent 71.3 percent of pending sales, down from a high of 83 percent in April 2012. The number of pending sales and short sales should continue to shrink as market conditions continue to improve. Distressed Properties: Fore closures and short sales, which stood at 35 percent of available properties in May 2012, ranged between 23 and 26 percent the last six months of 2013. We still have a challenge in this area but the good news is distressed properties ac counted for only 28.5 percent of homes on the market January 3. While there is still more work to be done, the forecast for the local existing home market in 2014 looks mostly sunny which is a good sign for all of us.
