FAIRFAX, Va., Oct. 8, 2012 – “An eye-filling evening of ancient legends, ritual ceremonies and wondrous acrobatics,” raves the Washington Times about these dynamic warriors from the Far East.

A pre-performance discussion, free to ticketholders, will be held 45 minutes prior to the performance in the Hylton Center’s Buchanan Partners Art Gallery. Prince William Hospital is the 2012-2013 season sponsor of the Hylton Presents season at the Hylton Performing Arts Center.

            Theensemble also appears at George Mason University’s Center for the Arts in Fairfax on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 11, 2012 at 4 p.m. as part of the Center’s Great Performances at Mason season.

            Performed by devoted disciples of the Shaolin schools in China, these monks are recognized across the globe for their fierce martial arts prowess and tremendous self-discipline. From an early age, Shaolin monks undergo rigorous training in meditation, relaxation techniques and physical exercise to focus their minds and bodies. “Voices of the Masters” showcases the diversity of this unique art form, and provides a rare glimpse into the daily lives of these Kung Fu masters and their Zen philosophy.
