The Taiwan Divine Land Marching Band is comprised of around 500 Falun Gong practitioners of various ages and occupations. These practitioners have gained their good health and higher moral levels through practicing Falun Gong. In order to let the world know about the beauty of Falun Gong, they frequently participate in a variety of events both in Taiwan and abroad. Last year, they were invited to lead the athletes onto the field at the Taiwan National Sports Meet. Their exquisite performing skills and noble style and appearance received applause and praise from the guests. Afterwards, they began to receive more and more invitations to give performances.

This year, the Yongkang Elementary School of Tainan County celebrates its 100-year anniversary and Principal Zhan Changwei specifically invited the Divine Land Marching Band to participate in the celebration.

The 100-year anniversary celebration received congratulatory letters from President Chen Shui-Bian and Secretary General Chen Tang-Shan of the National Security Committee. Guest participants included Tainan County Deputy Head Yan Chun-Zuo, national congresspersons, county legislation representatives and principals from many other schools. The anniversary celebration banner was led onto the field by the band with 125 practitioners. The scene was magnificent, and the performance that followed was outstanding and warmly received by the audience.
