Paris (VNA) – Nearly 1,000 Vietnamese and French people gathered in Paris on December 5 to enjoy a night music show of Vietnamese classical choruses.

The performance was delivered by a choir of over 30 singers from the Que Huong (The Homeland Choir) and the Rouen symphony orchestra.

Children from the Europe-Vietnam group in France also got engaged in the event.

French conductor Claude Brendel said the show had been much awaited and he felt very satisfied and happy.

Meanwhile violinist Juliette said she felt very lucky to perform in Paris to share the two countries’ cultural interaction. 

Nguyen Thanh Hang, an overseas Vietnamese in France, said “The performance was a big success. The orchestra devoted to the audience melodies praising Vietnam’s land and culture.”

Hop Ca Que Huong of the Vietnamese community in France was established in 2009 with over 30 members.

The choir has performed in various localities in France, including Choisy Le Roy – the twinning city with Vietnam.

Last July, it coordinated with the French Rouen symphony orchestra to produce a high-quality CD featuring Vietnamese epics.

On the sidelines of the event, the organising board displayed some photos and maps highlighting Vietnam’s sea and island sovereignty./.
