The Austrian Ambassador invited us to perform at the Vienna Charity Ball and it was quite the occasion!! The Vienna Orchestra flew in from Vienna to rehearse and perform with us, along with a Austrian Soprano soloist. Also in the line up of entertainment was La Hong’s Fashion Show, Debutantes waltzing, Ballet and Vietnamese Coloratura Soprano Bich Thuy.
The UNIS Children’s Choir, consisting of 65 Students in Grades 2 – 5, were treated to having costumes made especially for the performance. They performed songs from ‘The Sound of Music’ dressed in their Dirndl and Lederhosen.
A great time was had by all and I felt honored to be a part of such a memorable event in Hanoi. One of my most valuable memories of the whole experience is watching the joy on our students’ faces as they performed and learnt from each other behind the scenes, cross gender and cross grade levels.
