Young singers compete in 2016 national contest

60 young singers from across Vietnam are showing off their talents at a national contest that opened in Hanoi on Monday.

Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports, and Tourism Vuong Duy Bien spoke at the opening ceremony: "Singing is an art for all people but is also an academic discipline that requires vocal artists to train themselves intensively at school and on stage to win public acclaim. This contest is, I think, the first challenge of their professional music career, where young singers can gain experience for future performances."

The contestants will compete in 3 categories: classical music, folk music, and pop.
