HÀ NỘI  Top Vietnamese violinists and pianists will showcase their talent at a concert in the concert hall of Việt Nnam National Academy of Music in Hà Nội on November 6.

Galaxy Concert will feature professor and People’s Artist Ngô Văn Thành and his talented students who are also renowned artists like Nguyễn Công Thắng, Ngô Hoàng Linh and Hồ Việt Khoa.

The special guest of the event is Prof Trần Thu Hà, former rector of the Việt Nam National Academy of Music. Celebrated pianist Hà, who was also honoured with the title "People's Teacher", has guided many generations of students to become top artists in the Vietnamese music industry.

The concert will open with a joint performance from the violinists and pianists, which will be followed by solo performances of the artists and end with the song Hà Nội Niềm Tin Và Hy Vọng (Hà Nội – Faith and Hope).

According to its organisers, Galaxy Concert is expected to fill the audience with much emotion as Vietnamese Teachers’ Day, which falls on November 20, is approaching.

Senior violinist-professor Thành said the idea of ​​a concert night with generations of excellent violinists had been a long-term goal.

"We have a wish that the music night will give the artists more motivation to continue their path of devotion to more developed Vietnamese music," Thành added.

As a teacher with much enthusiasm for training many generations of talented students, Thành said the affection between art teachers and students is very special. After graduating from the academy, students become colleagues and perform with their teachers.

“I have always considered my students the most beloved ones in my life whom I have felt much pride in. The teacher can only help the students for a certain period. Talented artists will have to continue to learn from others and come up with their own creativity,” he said.

Prof Thành graduated from the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory in 1979. In the early 1990s until 1996, he worked as the dean of the Strings Department of the Hà Nội Conservatory of Music.

In 2006-2011 he was Director of the Hà Nội National Conservatory of Music, now the Việt Nam National Academy of Music.  VNS
