Shen Yun Performing Arts will begin its 2022-23 season on Christmas Eve and its first stop in the United States is Atlanta, Georgia.

Georgia state and municipal officials have issued greetings and proclamations to New York-based Shen Yun, welcoming its artists to the state and the various cities that Shen Yun will be visiting.

Governor of Georgia Brian P. Kemp sent a greeting to Shen Yun expressing his “warmest regards to Shen Yun as it returns to Georgia for another show season.” He extended this welcome to the “organizers and others who made this show possible, as well as the attendees.”

The members of the Atlanta City Council issued a proclamation, conveying their appreciation for Shen Yun. “The performances have been recognized for their scenic movement from one legend, region, or dynasty to the next. Themes range from the delicate elegance of Tang court ladies to the battlefield heroics of valiant generals, from the timeless philosophical works of Lao-Tzu to spectacular scenes of magical realms …”

Mayor of Augusta Hardie Davis Jr. shared in his letter, “It is my pleasure to congratulate Shen Yun Performing Arts, on upholding a banner of artistic culture through the avenue of Chinese dance and music. Your endeavor to revive the essence of 5,000 years of traditional Chinese culture, arts, and values that were destroyed in China under communist rule is successful and commendable. The discipline, diligence, and work ethic exhibited to perform so gracefully, and powerfully with tremendous detail is displayed so brilliantly in each performance.”

Mayor of Savannah, Van R. Johnson, II, issued a proclamation to Shen Yun, recognizing that, “Although Shen Yun represents traditional Chinese culture, the values and messages it shares are universal. Truth, compassion, tolerance, loyalty, freedom, filial piety, veneration for the divine, good being rewarded and evil punished resonate with worldwide audiences regardless of age, race, creed, and nationality.”

Mayor of Columbus B.H. “Skip” Henderson III issued a proclamation naming Jan. 17, 2023, “Shen Yun Day.” He added, “We are grateful to Shen Yun for bringing a beautiful visual representation of China’s vibrant cultural heritage to Columbus, Georgia.”

Shen Yun will be performing in Atlanta at the Atlanta Symphony Hall from Dec. 24 to Jan. 8, 2023, Augusta at the William B. Bell Auditorium from Jan. 10-11, Savannah at the Johnny Mercer Theatre, Savannah Civic Center, from Jan. 14-15, and Columbus at the River Center for the Performing Arts on Jan. 17.

Be sure to catch Shen Yun this season when it arrives in a city near you.
