Gala music event to pay tribute to Truong Son soldiers

One of Vietnam’s most famous music directors, Tran Vi My, hopes to leave a deep impression on music lovers, veterans and soldiers at the second gala ceremony to mark the SGGP charity programme ‘Nghia Tinh Truong Son’ (Sentimental Attachment for Truong Son Road).

The gala event and music concert will present to listeners popular revolutionary songs such as Dat nuoc (Country), Khat vong (Aspiration), Bai ca khong quen (Unforgettable song) by Pham Minh Tuan; Bai ca Truong Son (Truong Son song) by Dang Duong-Tran Chung; Dem Truong Son nho Bac (Remember Uncle Ho on Truong Son Night) by Tran Chung; Nhung ngoi sao ko tat (Forever shining stars) by Tran The Tuyen-Tran Gia Cuong; and Tinh dong chi (Comradeship) by Chinh Huu-Minh Quoc.

The director chose Vietnamese heroic mother, Nguyen Thi Thu, a mother of nine martyrs, as a typical image for the performance of the song titled Nguoi me Quang Nam (Quang Nam’s mother) by Doan Nho and performed by singer Huong Giang. Meritorious Artist Thanh Nguyet will play the role of mother Thu.

The song Nguoi linh gia va hoa hong tham (Old soldiers and a Rose) by Doan Nho, performed by Ngoc Tuyen tells about the life of an old soldier coming back home after war.

Bai ca khong quen (Unforgettable song) performed by Dam Vinh Hung honours unforgetable heroic moments of soldiers.  Khat vong (Aspiration) performed by Le Quyen will arouse national pride, inspiration and ideals of young people.

There will be exchanges between veteran soldiers and audiences during the event.

The show gives a deep knowledge of the sacrifices of armed forces for the sake of national defence and security.

The gala ceremony will be held at the Ho Chi Minh City Opera House on February 24.
