The Walt Disney Concert Hall is a premiere destination and home to the official Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, considered by many as forward thinking, innovative, venturesome and admired. According to Salonen, “We are not interested in re-creating the glories of the past, our intention has been to integrate 21st century music into the orchestra today.
Since the opening of the Walt Disney Music Concert Hall on October 23rd of 2003, The orchestra has presented countless world premieres. It was a true honor and joy producing this presentation together with all of the amazing artisans involved. Here are just a couple of the photographs from this remarkable event featuring our artisans performing at the concert hall.
Accompanying the orchestra was a unique collaboration between Wushu Shaolin Entertainment and the University of California Los Angeles Chinese Cultural troupe. Together there was a full ensemble of musicians, Lion Dancers, Dragon Dancers, and even a Monkey King artists. For everyone who was there, it was a sensational presentation to behold.
On behalf of the California Institute of the Arts (known as CalArts), Wushu Shaolin Entertainment was invited to produce a traditional Chinese Lion Dance Presentation in commemoration of the auspicious Chinese Lunar New Year of 2015. Cal Arts is a private university located in Valencia, in Los Angeles County, California. It was incorporated in 1961 as the first degree-granting institution of higher learning in the United States created specifically for students of both the visual and the performing arts. The school was founded and created by Walt Disney in the early 1960s and staffed by a diverse array of professionals.
The Lion Dance presentation was a unique surprise for all of the students who converged at the Cal Arts Common Space to promote creative connectivity during the International Education Week festival. In addition to Lion Dancing, the International festival also included Japanese Origami, Candy Tasting, and Brazilian Capoeira at the main Gallery Hall.
The event was a sensational surprise, as the Chinese Lion Costumes greeted many of the students bringing good luck and prosperity to all. Ranked as America’s top college for students in the arts by Newsweek, the campus serves as a continual center for art, culture, and education. The Institute first envisioned by Walt Disney encompasses a vibrant, electric community, inviting experimentation, independent inquiry, and active collaboration among artists, and cultural traditions.
The Chinese traditional Lion Dance is revered for promoting good luck and prosperity for everyone. The presentation was a unique experience featuring a new Lion Dance costume combined with unique Chinese cultural artistry. There is nothing more compelling than inspiring humanity to develop the courage of a lion and accomplish great success in life. For countless generations the Lion Dance has served as a symbol of courage and hope for all. Wushu Shaolin Entertainment is proud to continue passing down the traditions handed down for so many generations.
