Night of classics

Soprano singer Rumi Yano, pipa maestro Tu Shan Xiang and the HCMC Ballet Symphony Orchestra are conducted under the baton of Dean Khomik Anderson, one the rising stars conducting in the U.S.

The Saigon Times Concert - Harmony of Trust played to a full house on Saturday night at the HCMC Opera House. The concert, which was organized by the Saigon Times Group to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Thoi bao Kinh te Saigon (January 4, 1991 – January 4, 2011), also raised money to help disadvantaged students in central provinces. This year’s event featured four international artists including Filipino-American conductor Dean Khomik Anderson, Chinese pipa maestro Tu Shan Xiang, Ukrainian violinist Mira Khomik and Japanese soprano singer Rumi Yano. Here are some photos taken by The Saigon Times Daily’s photo-journalist Le Toan at the event.
