NDO - A special online art programme "Noi Vong Tay Lon: Dat Nuoc Dong Long, Vuot Qua Covid-19" (The Great Circle of Vietnam: The Country staying united to overcome COVID-19) is expected took place September 4.

The programme aims to raise awareness of disease prevention and control; encourage and honour the dedication and sacrifice of those actively participating on the frontline; contribute to spreading noble values and call on the whole people to remain united to overcome all difficulties and challenges.

Co-organised by the Department of Culture and Sports of Ho Chi Minh City, the Association of Vietnamese Scientists and Experts (AVSE Global) and a number of individuals, the 120-minute programme promises to be a unique artistic gift.

The show will feature the participation of many famous artists such as People's Artist Ta Minh Tam, Thanh Lam, Hong Nhung, Duc Tuan, Cam Van, Khac Trieu, Tung Duong, Thanh Bui, Kyo York, Tan Son, and Ha Le.

With the idea of using music to connect hearts, the programme is divided into three interconnected themes. In which, the theme "Que Huong Trong Trai Tim Toi" (Homeland in my heart) is a space for artists to express their love and nostalgia for Ho Chi Minh City. The theme "Vietnam Niem Tin Chien Thang" (Vietnam faith in victory) comprises of emotional songs expressing gratitude for the love of compatriots across the country for the city named after Uncle Ho. The theme "Cam On Tinh Yeu" (Thank you for love) is imbued with performances of optimism and hope, looking forward to a brighter future. Interspersed in the performances are the performances of Don Ca Tai Tu (traditional musical art form of the south), ethnic music and performances by the Ho Chi Minh City Ballet Symphony Orchestra and Opera.

It is expected that the programme will be broadcast online using three prepared materials: the pre-recorded part, the online performance from the artists' residences, and the live broadcast mixed with related daily stories in the context of the COVID-19 epidemic.
