HCM CITY – The Saigon International Student Orchestra (SISO) has made their first public appearance with a debut concert held at VOH Music One - Opera House in HCM City.

The Dream Concert - Youth Talent Series 2024/ No.1 kicks off a series of regular artistic activities, featuring performances by students, young artists and over 50 members of the SISO.

The musical night brought a wide range of emotions to the audience with iconic compositions such as Eine kleine Nachtmusik, Piano Concerto No. 3, Symphony No. 40 by Mozart, Cancan by Offenbach and Hungarian Dance No. 5 by Brahms.

It opened with a piano performance of Mozart's iconic composition, Eine kleine Nachtmusik, presented by Miss Eco Teen 2021 Bella Vũ.

With over 10 years of piano training, Bella holds an international music certification, ABRSM Piano Grade 5, along with numerous achievements, including a gold medal at the International Art Festival 2023 and a silver medal at the Asia Art Festival in 2015 and 2022.

She was crowned Miss Eco Teen International in 2021.

The 16-year-old student said she had been practising this musical piece for two years, but this is her first performance, together with around 50 artists in the grand auditorium with hundreds of spectators.

In addition to the opening performance, Bella also took on the role of MC in this concert.
