Texas: Houston Mayor Issues Proclamation Declaring Shen Yun Performing Arts Week in Houston

Sept. 18, 2021

Shen Yun Performing Arts will perform six shows at the Brown Theater at Wortham Centre in Houston from September 18 to 26, 2021, bringing audiences the essence of China’s 5000-year glorious culture.

The Mayor of the City of Houston issued a proclamation for the performing arts group declaring September 19 to 26, 2021, “Shen Yun Performing Arts Week in Houston, Texas”. The Mayor also sent his best wishes for a successful and memorable performance.


The proclamation reads as follows:

Whereas, Shen Yun Performing Arts formed in 2006 with a mission of cultural renewal; to revive the best of China’s majestic 5,000 year-old culture and take audience members on an unforgettable journey that shines through the ages with a universal message of goodness. Shen Yun combines the profound inner wisdom and elegance of classical Chinese dance with the beauty of authentic costumes; groundbreaking music seamlessly combines the best of the East and West, giving each dance an unmistakable exuberance: and,

Whereas, the unique classical, ethnic and folk dances of Shen Yun Performing Arts transcend the modern stage and bring the glory of ancient myth, legends and Chinese heroes to life on stage, Shen Yun Performing Arts not only entertains, but also more deeply educates, enriches and inspires; offering audiences for all ages a rare experience of consummate beauty and goodness; and,

Whereas, there has been an overwhelming and positive response to Shen Yun Performing Arts around the world; it is traditional Chinese culture as it was meant to be, a study in grace, fluidity, inner strength and positive virtues. Themes of kindness, compassion, and courage are brought out through the songs of eminent vocalists and stunning choreography; the human spirit triumphs over adversity in powerful, thought-provoking dances, providing an uplifting and inspiring experience; energize our Space city with hope; and,

Whereas, from September 18 through September 26, The Southern USA Falun Dafa Association will present Shen Yun Performing Arts at Wortham Centre Brown Theatre in Houston with an all new performance. Houstonians are encouraged to recognise the artistic accomplishments and cultural contributions of Shen Yun Performing Arts and the City of Houston extends best wishes for a successful and memorable event.

Therefore, I, Sylvester Turner, Mayor of the City of Houston, hereby proclaim September 19 through September 26, 2021, as

Shen Yun Performing Arts Week in Houston, Texas.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and have caused the Official Seal of the City of Houston to be affixed this 9th day of September, 2021.

Sylvester Turner, Mayor of the City of Houston
