Chief executive officer from KBWB TV, Bob Anderson said, "I love all of them. I think the soprano and alto are wonderful. The harpist is even more amazing."
Member of Union City Council, Manny Fernandez said, "I liked all the performances. I particularly appreciate the host and hostess. Their facilitating introduction to each performance was very good. Such as, the shoes. But for their introduction, we may not have paid attention to the shoes. Because of the hostess' introduction, the audience then could appreciate the characteristic of the dance. The host and hostess introduced each performance in fluent Chinese and English. They gave an interesting introduction to every performance."
U.S.-Taiwan Business Council Chairman, Wang said, "There is such high-standard performance among our Chinese people, and the performance is so elegant; it is really not easy. I'm glad to have come here."
