The event is organized specifically for classical music lovers and will be held in Ho Chi Minh City on July 28 before moving to Hanoi on August 5 under the direction of talented Japanese conductor Honna Tetsuji.
Tetsuji is currently working as the Music Director and Principal Conductor of the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra (VNSO).
Also, Vietnamese artist Phan Do Phuc earned a doctorate in cello performance from Stony Brook University in New York before returning to Vietnam to become the cellist of the Sun Symphony Orchestra in Hanoi.
He has cooperated with many renowned cellists all over the world. In 2020, he is a soloist and performs the poetic piece “Don Quixote” by Richard Strauss alongside the Vietnam Symphony Orchestra.
This year, Phan Do Phuc became the first conductor of the Vietnam Youth Orchestra, the local artist aiming to make a significant contribution to building a living orchestra.
During the Toyota 2022 concert program, Phan Do Phuc and the Vietnam Symphony Orchestra will perform two classical pieces, namely Cello Concerto in B minor, Op.104 and Symphony No. 9 in E minor, also known as the name of “From the New World” or the “New World” of the Czech composer Antonín Leopold Dvořák.
All proceeds from ticket sales for both concerts will be donated to promising students to help them pursue their passion for classical music.
