Charity concert to feature young Vietnamese-Australian musicians

Heart Reach Australia, a humanitarian aid organization, will hold its annual charity concert on July 31 at New World Hotel Saigon, featuring two well-known Vietnamese-Australians.

Twenty-one-year-old Van Anh Nguyen, at age 9 and 12, was one of the youngest pianists of her generation to receive the Associate Diploma in Music and the Licentiate Diploma in Music from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

Thanh Bui has been recognized for his strong vocals and charisma on stage. He finished in the top 10 of Australian Idol in 2008.

All the money raised will go towards Heart Reach Australia's projects in Ben Tre and Quang Tri provinces. At the concert, organizers will also hold an auction for a diamond necklace, starting at US$200.

Tickets are sold at the front desk of New World Hotel Saigon in HCMC for VND1.5 million (US$77) per person.
