Concert held to help Agent Orange-affected children (July 28, 2003)

A concert of musician Tran Ngoc, introducing his children songs, has recently been held to raise fund for children affected by Agent Orange.

At the age of 60 and 50 years in the profession, composer and director Tran Ngoc has always looked for a specific style of his own with a new art language imbued with folk characteristics. His songs feature not only the childhood, the landscape but also the humanity. He said he had a great compassion for children affected by Agent Orange. Therefore, he has organised concerts to raise fund to help the disabled for many years.

His recent charity concert, named ‘We are white doves’, was to respond the 56th anniversary of the War Invalids’ and Fallen Combatants’ Day. ‘We are white doves’ is the name of his song, which depicts desire of all Vietnamese and international children about a world of peace. The song is also selected one of 50 best songs of the 20th century by Tien Phong (Pioneer) newspaper, the Composers’ Association, Radio the Voice of Vietnam and Vietnam Television in 1999.

Through the concert, about VND 8 million has been collected to help disadvantaged children in Ha Tinh, Lao Cai and Thai Nguyen provinces.
