The Festival

FINAL logo

After successful festivals in Canada, 2011, and the US in 2013, the Festival for Vietnamese Traditional Music makes its debut in Australia in August this year. We are connecting the greater Vietnamese diaspora through music and promoting knowledge of Vietnamese traditional music to the wider community. And, most of all, we are sharing of culture, knowledge, and music, from different corners of the world. There will be lectures, presentations, workshops and a Gala Concert with Vietnamese and Western performers. Listen to new ideas, enjoy tradition, and explore with us as we find out what Vietnamese music means to different people!

This Festival is proudly supported by the Australian National University School of Music, Vietnam Foundation and University Preparation College Australia.  You are cordially invited to attend the World Festival of Vietnamese Traditional Music during 14 – 16 August 2015 in Sydney and please stay tuned for Festival updates from this website.
