Cathedral Concert Series is Maestoso’s project of free concerts bringing a new and unique experience to Vietnamese musicians and audiences.
The characteristic architecture of the cathedral will deliver a high-quality acoustic and an intimate atmosphere to the listeners. With the desire to bring classical music to Vietnamese public in a most widely way, all the concerts in the cathedral will be non-ticket concerts, free of charge, opened to all audiences who are interested in classical music.
Both performers and audiences will be able to experience the closest atmosphere of the traditional European classical music making. The long term goal of this series is to create a habit of listening to classical music, in its most original way, and gradually become a cultural grace of the capital.
