Taking place at the Ly Thai To Statue garden in Hoan Kiem District from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on October 6, the concert will showcase the beauty of Vietnam, its people, and the thousand-year-old capital of Hanoi – a city of peace and a world-class destination for international cultural events. Featuring talented artists from abroad, led by one of the world’s finest conductors, Elim Chan, the prestigious London Symphony Orchestra, will bring a performance filled with musical virtuosity and enthusiasm. The concert will also be broadcast live on large screens installed around Hoan Kiem Lake so that it can reach a wider audience. From delivering artistic excellence on stage, in recordings and on film, to its world-leading music education and community program, the London Symphony Orchestra strives to bring great music to as many people as possible. Established in 1904, it was one of the first self-governing orchestras, built on the values of partnership and artistic ownership. That entrepreneurial spirit continues today.
