Autumn for the Children of Vietnam – Mua Thu Cho Em
VN Help’s 14th Annual Fundraising Concert
Featuring award-winners from Vietnam who will perform traditional and modern
music with Vietnamese traditional instruments: zither, t’rung, bamboo flute, 2
string violin, 36-string hammer dulcimer, etc. Vietnamese folk songs, semi
classics, and pop music will also be performed by renowned singers.
Highlights of Musicians:
Vo Van-Anh: graduated with distinction from the National
Conservatory of Music in Hanoi (Nhac Vien Ha Noi. In 1995, Van-Anh won the
Championship title in the national zither competition (dan tranh) along with
the special prize for best solo performance for modern folk music.
She has performed in more than fourteen countries. Besides
dan tranh, Van-Anh also performs as a soloist on other instruments
such as the monochord (dan bau), the 36-string hammered dulcimer
(dan tam thap luc), the bamboo xylophone (dan t'rung), the k'longput,
and traditional drum (trong).
Cao Ho Nga: graduated from the National Conservatory of Music
in Saigon in 2002 (Nhac Vien Saigon). She won a gold medal in 1999
at the National Festival for Professional Music Performers (Hoi
Dien Chuyen Nghiep Toan Quoc). She is the leader of the Mat Troi Do
performing group, which is well-known for their stage performance
in Vietnamese traditional music. Ho Nga has performed with the
Rokasen group in Japan, in the national Jazz festival in France,
and in many other countries in Europe. Similar to her music friend
5 Dong Ke: is a singing quartet who will appear for the third time
at a VNHELP concert due to popular demand from the VNHELP fans.
They will once again show their beautiful vocal harmony with folk
and pop music. To fit in with the concert theme this year,
5 Dong Ke will also perform on some Vietnamese instruments to
show their rich talents.
Duc Tuan: first-prize winner in the Television Singing Contest
2000 (Giai Truyen Hinh 2000), will win the hearts of the audience
with his “classic” voice. His selection of songs are usually those of Van Cao,
Pham Duy, Pham Dinh Chuong, Trinh Cong Son, etc. Audiences from around the
globe have been surprised that at such a young age, Duc Tuan can deliver those
classics to perfection.
Huong Lan: will be charming in her performance of Vietnamese country
music (nhac que huong) and Southern folk songs (vong co). These
are the musical styles which VNHELP would like to include in our
concert for the first time this year. A part of the Vietnamese
Southern culture will be reflected in Huong Lan’s musical expertise.
