The well-known Boston Children’s chorus (BCC) from the US will visit
Vietnam at the end of June, where they will perform in Ho Chi Minh
City and Hanoi.

The chorus will arrive in HCM
City on June 23 and take a guided tour to the Cuu Long (Mekong)
Delta, according to Vietnam News daily.

The tour is
followed by a visit to the Cu Chi tunnels – part of the underground
network of passageways constructed by the Vietnamese resistance fighters
during their long struggle for independence.

After the trip, they will see HCM City ‘s centre and perform at the HCM Opera House on June 26.

They will perform at the Ha Noi Opera House on June 29 after touring the Old Quarter and Bat Trang ceramic village.

After their five-day stay in Vietnam , they will leave for Cambodia.

The Boston Children’s Chorus, founded in 2003, is an innovative arts
education organisation that unites children ages 7 – 19 without regard
for race, religion or socio-economic status.

The chorus’s goal is
for the children to discover the power of singing and transcend social
barriers in a celebration of shared humanity and love of music.

It began with only 20 children in a pilot training programme and today
has 450 singers in eleven choirs in five Boston locations.-VNA
