An International Charity Christmas Concert will be held at Au Co Theater in Hanoi on December 9.

Music lovers will have a chance to enjoy performances of classical to modern music, from solo to a choir by local artists and foreign musicians from Africa and Korea, which will include Trang Trinh, Park Sung Min, The Shin Trio, Ella Walls, and The African Band.

All proceeds from ticket sales and silent auction will go to support the construction of a house for disabled and disadvantaged children in Phu Chau Commune of Ba Vi District in Hanoi.

Trang Trinh is one of Vietnam’s most interesting classical performers. Trained in London at the Royal Academy of Music, Trang has an international career with concerts in Europe and Asia.

Park Sung Min, husband of Trang, is a professional tenor and has performed widely in Russia, Europe and Asia. He is the conductor of the Hanoi Korean Church Choir and founder of the Miracle Choir, made up of children from various children’s homes in Hanoi.

The Shin Trio, Father Joshua and daughters Mary and Joy have a passion for excellence and desire to provide musical enjoyment for the homeless. Joshua holds a Doctorate of Music in Piano Pedagogy.

Ella Walls has performed in musical theater shows and has been part of a contemporary music ministry in Australia before coming to Hanoi. One of our own worship leaders, Ella impressed the audience and officials at our Easter concert last spring.

The African Band will use various African music styles to give a great Christmas performance. The group has been hosted at embassy parties and other international events in Hanoi.
