Saigon Chamber Music: Young Virtuosi Concert 2017

8pm, August 11

Ho Chi Minh City Conservatory of Music

112 Nguyen Du Street, District 1

Saigon Chamber of Music is the first summer music festival and training with a focus on ensemble music in Vietnam. Once a year, it provides a perfect chance for young musicians to remove themselves from the pressure of their solo repertoire and venture into the art of ensemble music, where they connect with others, reflect on their musical voice, and develop their musicianship.


Exhibition 'Then I Can Turn the World Upside Down'

Salon Saigon

6D Ngo Thoi Nhiem, Ward 7, District 3

‘Then I Can Turn the World Upside Down’ is an exhibition of works on paper by five Vietnam-based contemporary artists. Each work explores in its own subjective way, by Le Hoang Bich Phuong, Mai Hoang, Nguyen Manh Hung, Florian Nguyen and Hoang Nam Viet, the myriad of possibilities inherent in the medium of drawing to create imaginary realities which evoke the subconscious.

With their ink and paper, the artists have created visions of hidden beauty and reinterpretations of the world, revealing quasi-hallucinatory perspectives on otherwise too familiar landscapes.

2nd Floor, 103 Dong Khoi Str, District 1

Le’s WTC in four moments (2014), The Propeller Group’s AK-47 vs. M16 (2015) and Phuong Linh’s Sanctified Clouds (2012-2015), will be on display for the first time to the Vietnamese public.
