    WHAT PERFORMERS ARE SAYING

    It was truly a great honour to perform at the famous stage of Carnegie Hall in the presence of a talented conductor and accompanied by a wonderful orchestra. It was an unforgettable experience for me as a member of the Music Association of Auckland to participate at a world class concert. “Two cultures, One dream” – I wish the world is a peaceful place forever!

    — XiuYin Chen

    “Our experience with DCINY, without exception, was incredible! We were amazed at the warm and personal attitude of you and your staff. Not once did I see a frown from your people — even when answering the same question over and over.
