HA NOI (VNS)— A variety of performances will be given across the country from this Saturday to next Tuesday to celebrate the Vietnamese Music Day (September 3), according to Do Hong Quan, chairman of the Viet Nam Musicians Association.

This would be an occasion to honour Vietnamese music and musicians as well as to bring music closer to the public, he said.

Highlights of the event include a gala night at the Ha Noi Opera House, featuring works by the late composers Nguyen Dinh Thi and Van Cao, winners of the Ho Chi Minh Award; and performances on outdoor stages near Ba Kieu Temple and Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum in Ha Noi, and public places in HCM City.

The annual Vietnamese Music Day was organised for the first time on September 3, 2010. On the same day in 1960, President Ho Chi Minh conducted a choir and an orchestra in a performance of Bai Ca Ket Doan (Solidarity Song) at Ha Noi's Bach Thao Botanical Garden.
