This charity concert is a joint effort of Heartbeat Vietnam and Program Director - Korean Violinist Jmi Ko.
More than 40 members of The Vietnam International Youth Music (Orchestra, Choir, Piano) have continously practiced for more than 6 weeks to present a magnificent night of various joyful and melodious ensembles with lots of emotion.
The concert received great support from ISHCMC, Singer Thao Trang and Actress Truong Ngoc Anh. Principal Adrian Watts has consistently supported the organization of the concert from the first days. Moreover, the Parents Organization of ISHCMC and many other volunteer students also enthusiastically took part in the preparation and organization for the concert as it would serve a more noble cause of saving children with congenital heart defects.
