Nhan Dan Online – AUN J Classic Orchestra is set to return to Vietnam on December 12 for a special concert at the Youth Theatre in Hanoi.

AUN J was formed in 2008 and consists of eight Japanese artists whose mission is to introduce traditional Japanese music and instruments to the world.

The orchestra has performed at more than 70 Japan venues and countries around the world – including France, Italy, China, Papua New Guinea and Croatia – to promote the beauty of Japanese culture through their music.  They first performed in Vietnam in 2011.

The orchestra’s musicians have won a variety of prizes in Japan and abroad. They employ traditional Japanese instruments like the taiko (drum), shamisen (three-stringed lute), koto (13-stringed zither), shakuhachi (bamboo flute), shinobue (transverse flute) and narimoto (percussion).

The concert will also feature Ngo Tra My and Nguyen Thanh Thuy, two famous Vietnamese artists, promising inspirational moments created by diverse forms of traditional music.

Free tickets can be collected at the Japan Foundation Centre for Cultural Exchange in Vietnam at 27 Quang Trung street, Hanoi.
