Artists from seven European countries will join their Vietnamese counterparts in a twelve-day music festival starting on November 26 in Hanoi.
Germany's Signum Quartet, the Duo Gazzana from Italy and Dutch piano artist Mike Del Ferro are among the artists who will perform at the festival.
Although the number of participant countries is fewer than last year, the festival promises to inspire audiences with a new combination of artists and music styles, said Sean Doyle, head of European Commission delegation.
Featuring various kinds of music from jazz to pop, the annual festival will last two nights at the capital's Tuoi Tre (Youth) Theater before moving to Ho Chi Minh City Conservatory of Music.
The event is held by Vietnam's Ministry of Culture - Sports - Tourism in cooperation with the European Commission in Vietnam and the embassies of seven countries: Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain.
Free tickets are available from Thursday at Hanoi's Goethe Institute (No.56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc Street); Hanoi's French Culture Center (No.24 Trang Tien Street); and HCMC's Goethe Institute (No.335/4 Dien Bien Phu, District 3).
