A unique open-air symphony event is helping to increase the public's exposure to classical music.

As an initiative of the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra and the Vietnam Museum of Fine Arts, a special outdoor symphony concert with the theme "Summer Melodies" will be performed on July 7 at the Vietnam Museum of Fine Arts, 66 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street, Hanoi.

It's part of the "When Music Blends with Fine Arts" program organized by the museum and the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra to attract visitors and bring chamber music closer to the public.
Previously, at the end of March 2024, the outdoor concert with the theme "Melodies of the Season: Spring", met with a positive response from the audience.

The program will feature soprano Do Vu Lan Nhung and artists from the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Nguyen Khac Thanh.

Nhung and the artists will bring to the audience many pieces of music by world-famous composers: Carmen Suite No 2 (Bizet), The Entertainer (Scott Joplin), Summer Time (Gershwin), Eine Klein Nachtmusik (Mozart), Waltz No 2 (Shostakovich), Serenade (Schubert), Canon in D (Pachelbel), Habanera excerpted from the opera Carmen (Bizet), Je Veux Vivre excerpted from the opera Romeo and Juliette (Gounod), among others.

Singer Nhung has a soprano voice with a strong personal performance style. She studied voice at the Vietnam National Academy of Music. In 2016, Lan Nhung received a scholarship to study opera at the National University of Music in Bucharest, Romania. She has won several international awards. In 2021, she was selected to sing solo at the Enescu Music Festival - one of the most prestigious music festivals in Europe.

After graduating with honors from the Bucharest National University of Music, Nhung returned to Vietnam after studying abroad for five years. In 2023, she participated in the National Chamber Singing, Musical, and Choir Competition and won the first prize.

Currently, this talented singer works at the Vietnam Opera and Ballet Theater and successfully played the lead role of Carmen in the theater's opera Carmen in 2024.
