Vietnam – US art exchange: Simple but splendid

A Vietnam – US art exchange program was held by the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism at 2-4 Square in Nha Trang on June 10.

The program is in the framework of Nha Trang Sea Festival 2013, featuring the performance of the jazz quintet Five Play from the US. They include five female members: Sherrie Maricle (drums), Tomoko Ohno (piano), Noriko Ueda (bass), Jami Dauber (trumpet) and Janelle Reichman (saxophone and clarinet).

The Five Play jazz quintet has performed in many prestigious concerts, at universities and jazz clubs across the US, including Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, and also at major festivals in many countries such as Israel, Japan, France, Germany, Spain and Portugal.

From Vietnam, the Hai Dang musical band in Khanh Hoa province performed a dance drama “Legend of Po Ina Nagar” with the participation of 100 actors and actresses.
