HÀ NỘI – A music and dance performance encouraging naval soldiers who live far from home to fulfil the mission will be organised on April 9.
Entitled Spring – Family – Islands, the concert features singing and dancing by famous artists such as Trọng Tấn, Anh Thơ and Thanh Thúy.
Songs to be performed include Gần Lắm Trường Sa (Spratly Is So Close) composed by Hình Phước Long, Tình Ta Biển Bạc Đồng Xanh (Our Love, Silver Sea, Green Fields) by Hoàng Sông Hương and Nơi Đảo Xa (On the Far Island) by Thế Song.
It is a gift to encourage the soldiers and their families to complete the task to protect national sovereignty.
“The concert also raises people’s awareness of the role and strategic position of our territorial waters,” Phan Đình Tân, speaker of the Ministry of Culture, said.
“The songs praise the patriotism, beauty and value of the sea and islands. They ask people to be responsible to protect the sovereignty.”
The programme will be broadcast live on Việt Nam Television from the Việt Nam Exhibition Centre for Culture and Arts, 2 Hoa Lư Street, Hà Nội. -- VNS
