Shen Yun Performing Arts wrapped up the Canadian leg of its 2009 World Tour with a show at the Regina's Conexus Arts Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan on Sunday, April 19th, 2009.
Businessman: "It's Tremendous"
Mr. Fahlman, owner of a furniture refinishing business, said during intermission that he found the show "very inspirational and educational." "I'm really enjoying it - it's tremendous! I like the costumes, the colours, and the talent of all the individuals - how they just go change and come to the next dance and then do different things. Very impressive."

He continued, "I enjoyed the music as well as the musicians playing it, and the variety and the talent - a lot of talent there. I liked the drums and the gong," adding that he also liked the erhu performance. "That was very nice. I had different emotions throughout the piece. I could follow how it flowed and the different emotions she was playing with."
Arts Administrator: "Very Enjoyable"
Mr. Lozowchuk, a sociologist and former executive director for Saskatchewan's leading choral organisation, thought the "singing was very good." "I liked the music very much. It's very enjoyable in terms of presentation of this quality and calibre, because obviously the people who were performing were very good," said Mr. Lozowchuk.

Not having been exposed to Chinese music before, he was impressed "particularly [by] some of the more classical instruments at this kind of a professional level. It's very enjoyable in terms of presentation of this quality and calibre, because obviously the people who were performing were very good," said Mr. Lozowchuk.
"The artistic performance was very good, very pleasing, very classical. The message was good and enjoyable," he said.
Church Minister: "Lots of Feelings, Lots of beauty"
Ms. Sunberg, a local church minister, attended the show with her adopted daughter, who is originally from China.

Overcome with emotion, Ms. Sunberg said, "Lots of feelings, lots of beauty. I am so glad my daughter has a chance to see the beauty, to see some of her heritage, and what it means to be Chinese Canadian."
"To see all the different cultures from all the different regions is very, very important," Ms. Sunberg said.
