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 &VEGETABLES FRESH FRUIT W Brian Thomas Produce 110 Geneva Drive, Old Downtown Oviedo(Across From Ace Hardware) VINE RIPE TOMATOES Flu is a very democratic disease in that sense.

Pianos for a cause Pop-Up Pianos by the Steinway Society is a performance art happening that has sparked interest in performing arts and raised money to support the arts in Semi nole County. Local artists create a theme for each donated piano, paint them, and place them in designated public loca tions. The public is invited to sit down and play me at all pianos on display. All around the world, Pop-Up Pianos has generated tremendous media attention and YouTube video interest for the amaz ing performances of folks who sat down and spontaneously played the pianos. Each sponsor of a donated piano selects an artist and a venue, approves the de sign and provides the paint. A multi-media Pop Up Piano Debut event will be held in April 2014 where the artists will be painting the pianos, which are then delivered to the Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center in Sanford for a gala auction. Proceeds benet the Steinway Society, Seminole Cultural Arts Council and the Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center. The piano art connection remains after the auction concludes, since many pianos are donated to non-prots or government facilities for the enjoyment of the commu nity. To get involved, visit JAN. 11 A cancer benet for longtime Geneva res ident Rishel Jimenez, who is ghting cer vical and lymphoma cancers, will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. Jan. 11 at the Jolly Gator Fish Camp, 4650 E.
