HA NOI (VNS) — Vietnamese-Australian guitarist Le Hoang Minh will return to Viet Nam for performances here and in HCM City late this month.
Minh is the only Vietnamese member of Guitar Trek, Australia's premier guitar quartet. He caught the attention of the world after winning first prize at the prestigious Adelaide Spring Guitar Festival Competition in 2001.
Minh began playing the guitar at the age of nine. During his career, he toured Europe and performed in a number of big events such as Festival Sydney, Canberra International Chamber Music Festival and Brunswick Music Festival.
Minh won first prize in a competition with 30 other young guitarists from 10 countries at the 50th Tokyo International Guitar Competition last year.
"Beside the performances, I'm delighted to share with Vietnamese pupils and students my knowledge, techniques and styles through short training classes," Minh said.
Minh will perform at HCM City on November 27 before his solo concert here at L'Espace at 24 Trang Tien Street on November 29. — VNS
