Hanoi (VNA) - The Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra (VNSC) will coordinate with the Acecook Vietnam Joint Stock Company to put on two arts programmes entitled "Happiness Concert", which will be held at the Hanoi Opera House on January 13-14.

The Vietnamese artists will perform symphonic music under the leadership of renowned Japanese conductor Tetsuji Honna.

Immortal works by famous composers will be performed, including William Tell by Gioachino Antonio Rossini, Bugler's Holiday and The Syncopated Clock by Leroy Anderson, and the Symphony No.5 in C minor op.67 by Ludwig van Beethoven.

Through the programme, the organisers hope to bring an exquisite taste of chamber music closer to art lovers in Vietnam, especially the young.

"We will give the audience a very abundant and close concert by skillful persons and quality in the professional field," said Nguyen Tri Dung, the director of VNSC. "The programme's content is carefully selected from the canonical classical pieces in the world with familiar melodies that we've known for a long time."

The concert's organising board will raise over 50 million VND (2,220 USD) from selling 200 tickets for the "Compassionate Heart Fund" to support individuals living in difficult circumstances and people with disabilities, as well as contribute to the development of community cultural and arts activities.-VNA
