Campus 2009
Vietnam

Guest of the Orchestra Campus 2009 was the orchestra of the Vietnam National Academy of Music Hanoi which was established in 1956 under the Ministry of Culture and Information. Vietnam’s largest and finest center of music education has three main sections: education, scholarly research and performance. Its goals are to reserve, strengthen and develop the country’s traditional musical heritage while absorbing musical influences worldwide. These activities are to lead to the development of a modern Vietnamese music that identifies with tradition.
In the last ten years, many conservatory students have been selected by the Asian Youth Orchestra, the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, the London Royal Academy of Music and the Pacific Music Center to participate in seminars and concert tours worldwide. International professors teach and perform regularly at the conservatory to acquaint teachers and students with international music of high standard.

Patron of the Orchestra Campus 2009 was the Vietnamese Minister for Culture, Hoàng Tun Anh
