The concert will feature renowned artists such as saxophonist Quach Tien Dung, the Saigon Sax Quintet and conductor Ho Duy Truong, along with the teachers and students of the conservatory’s faculties of Pop, Rock, Jazz and Music Technology.

Consisting of students from various universities and music lovers aged between 18 and 40, the choir’s ambition is to bring classical music to a wider audience.

Since 2017, the choir has performed in dozens of concerts. In May 2019, the choir won a silver medal at the sixth International Choir Competition in Danang.

The organizers will also grant 50 Homtamin scholarships worth VND4 million each to excellent university students in HCMC.

The United Family Concert 2020 begins at 6:30 p.m.
