Asia-Europe New Music Festival to open November 24
The Asia-Europe New Music Festival will take place in Hanoi and Ninh Binh later this month, said Chairman of the Vietnamese Musicians' Association Do Hong Quan at a press conference in Hanoi on Friday.
The festival will operate as an art forum, showcasing Vietnam's recent achievements in new music and introducing local musicians and their works to international audiences.
The event will help foreign musicians and artists gain insight into the land, people, culture, and traditional music of Vietnam, contributing to strengthening the relations between Vietnamese artists and their foreign colleagues.
More than 200 artists and musicians from over 30 countries worldwide will perform in different genres of music, such as symphonies, chamber music, and choirs.
During the festival from November 24 to 28, Vietnam's traditional musical instruments and rituals will be introduced at the Temple of Literature in Hanoi and the Trang An Landscape Complex in Ninh Binh.
