New Chinese Concert Performs in Cambridge City Hall in the United Kingdom (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) In the evening of March 9, 2002, artists from the United States, Germany, France and Taiwan together performed a wonderful and unique "The New Chinese Concert" in the concert hall of Cambridge City Hall. What made it unique was that all the artists were Dafa practitioners except for a pianist who is a friend of Falun Gong.
The concert had a very high artistic level. The performances were varied, including a piano solo, an elegant opera episode, performances on a xiao (a vertical bamboo flute), erhu (a two-stringed bowed Chinese instrument), and guzheng (a 21- or 25- stringed plucked instrument in some ways similar to the zither), dances, and soprano and alto singers.
Most of the music, songs and dances were produced and performed by practitioners. Some of these performances paid tribute to the greatness of the spreading of Dafa, providing salvation in the world; some told of Dafa practitioners' great contributions to truth-clarification, despite the evil persecution; some described practitioners' experiences of cultivation in Dafa. The whole atmosphere was very serene but lively. The Dafa artists' great performances won a lot of warm applause.
At the end, all the artists performed the chorus of "Falun Dafa is good" and pushed the concert to the climax.
The students who had made a special trip to attend the concert from a university in London thus gained a positive understanding of Dafa. After the concert, they told Dafa practitioners, "We understand Falun Dafa now." Many audiences highly praised the concert and expressed hope that they would have a chance to enjoy this kind of concert again.
