The Vietnam Youth Music Institute (VYMI) is organizing this event, and it will feature seven talented young musicians who will perform alongside the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra (VNSO) and Maestro Honna Tetsuji.

The concert offers a unique opportunity for the audience to immerse themselves in classical music while participating in inspiring discovery activities.

The VYMI has carefully designed and curated the entire experience, focusing on engagement, exploration, listening, and emotion, to provide the most inspiring classical music experience for the audience.

The VYMI EduConcert: Mozart & Now in 2023 will showcase a program consisting of four masterpieces by renowned composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The program includes the Divertimento in D major, K.136; the Flute Concerto No.1 in G major, K.316; the Violin Concerto No.2 in D major, K.211; and the Piano Concerto No.17 in G major, K.453.

During the concert, the seven young soloists, ranging in age from 11 to 17, both professional and amateur, will perform the three concertos for flute, violin, and piano.

These talented young artists went through the rigorous “Mozart & Now: Soloist Audition” process, spanning three months, and were selected as soloists to perform with the renowned Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra (VNSO) and Maestro Honna Tetsuji.

The VYMI’s first educational concert, titled “Classical Wonderland,” took place in 2022 and received overwhelmingly positive feedback, particularly from the youth and children in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Encouraged by the positive response from the community, the VYMI is determined to build the VYMI EduConcert as a bridge between the future generation and the past of classical music. The concert also aims to introduce the beauty and cultural significance of Western classical music to the people of Vietnam.
