The first cello doctor in Vietnam to perform the music night "Return"
(HNMO) - As the first doctorate in Vietnam majoring in music and cello performance, Dinh Hoai Xuan always had the desire to spread classical music closer to the audience. She is also a rare classical artist to maintain the classical concert series "Cello Fundamento" since 2016. This year, the show will take place only one night on the evening of December 29 in Hanoi with the participation of many international artists.
Dinh Hoai Xuan named this classic night "Home Sweet Home". She explained, "Returning" is the wish of many Vietnamese artists when studying abroad. The female artist from Quang Binh wants to express her gratitude to the land that sparked her passion for the cello.

In her thesis, she pointed out 3 suggestions to do, which are to bring the cello to school; organize a cello contest for Vietnamese cello lovers at home and abroad; produce a game show that combines cello with games to spread the word to everyone, especially the younger generation. In the short term, she has a plan to bring the cello to schools, reaching about 100,000 students across the country.
