On May 18 & 19, the summer concert “The Joy of Song”, featuring the International Choir of HCMC (ICOHCMC) and the students from the FOBISIA Youth Choir was successfully performed on the Soul Live Project stage. During the 90 minute concert, more than 100 singers and instrumentalists delivered various performances that were truly captivating. For the very first time, the ICOHCMC was joined by the children from the FOBISIA Youth Choir, and this collaboration left great impressions with the audience. The most special part of the concert was the performance of Zimbe! – the famous choral fusion of African songs and jazz, performed for the very first time in Asia. It brought joyful and exciting music together; just as the name of the concert suggested – “The Joy of Song”.
“I am very proud of those involved in the success of the concert”, said Mr. Gareth Groves, Artistic Director of ICOHCMC. He also wished to express his gratitude toward the concert’s venue sponsor, Soul Live Project.
