Vietnamese Culture Night Returns to Ossian Hall Park


Vietnamese Culture Night Returns to Ossian Hall Park

The Fairfax County Park Authority is pleased to announce the third annual Vietnamese Cultural Heritage Night at Ossian Hall Park in Annandale, Va. This 90-minute performance celebrating Vietnamese culture starts at 7 p.m. on Saturday, August 2, 2014. Admission is free.

Vietnamese Cultural Night is part of the “Explore the World in Your Community” series, an international music and dance series aimed at promoting awareness and appreciation of Fairfax County’s cultural diversity. The show will feature fresh talents as well as all-time favorites, all geared to highlight Vietnam’s peace-loving attitude, multicultural diversity, and its people’s independent spirits through folk instrumental and choral music, as well as traditional and contemporary dances.

Renowned flutist Nguyễn Đình Nghiã’s ensemble will perform with many folk instruments, playing a cross-section of Vietnam’s diverse musical traditions. More contemporary dance interpretations and songs will be performed by youth groups, such as George Mason University students, Vietnamese Youth Education Association, and local high school music artists. Performers of all ages will lend their skilled voices to project the vitality of the Vietnamese American community, of which many members are not only keen on preserving their heritage but also committed to participating in the local cultural scene.
