From Goethe Institut:
Year after year – The Christmas concert of the Goethe-Institut brings again Christmas to Hanoi and for the first time also to Haiphong. After an exciting year with a lot of cultural events, new German students and graduates Christmas is just around the corner. The Goethe-Institut invites kindly to celebrate the end of the year with compositions of Johann Sebastian Bach, Telemann, Mozart et al. in a tranquil atmosphere at the courtyard of the Institute.

Again under the direction of Graham Sutcliffe singers of the International Choir and young musicians from Hanoi attune the audience for the Christmas days. But this time not only Hanoi gets the enjoyment of the Christmas atmosphere. For the fist time the concert takes also place at the opera house in Haiphong.
