“I am so impressed. I think the classical training, combined… Just the historical references and things I’m learning about the Chinese culture have just been really impressive. It’s very emotional as well, very moving… The government and communism, the clamping down on the arts, and not allowing it to be free, and the fact that they’re expressing that so that everybody can learn what it’s really like and what the people are going through… You hear it differently here in the United States, you’re actually hearing it from the people, you’re hearing the story, it’s important for us to hear, it’s important for us to learn that.
