Audiences can anticipate enchanting renditions from ballet classics like “Swan Lake” and “The Nutcracker,” alongside timeless favourites such as “Nessun Dorma,” “Hello Vietnam,” the Titanic anthem “My Heart Will Go On,” and festive tunes like “Joy to the World” and “Jingle Bells.”

Maestro Vinh’s Vision

Born into a family of esteemed traditional musicians, Vinh’s passion for music ignited at a young age.

A virtuoso in bamboo flute, he now serves as the conductor and teacher of orchestral conducting at the Vietnam National Academy of Music.

Describing the upcoming orchestral cruise as a cause for celebration, Vinh emphasizes the unique opportunity to bring orchestral music to a wider audience in the spectacular setting of Halong Bay.

“My desire is to bring music to everyone, and this is an irresistible opportunity,” Vinh expressed. “To take this enchanting music, usually performed in a large concert hall, and bring it to an open space, one as spectacular as Halong Bay, with a new audience of cruisers is particularly rewarding.”
