Toyota Concert

Overview

The annual Toyota Concert, funded by TMV (now the Toyota Vietnam Foundation) was first held in 1998 in order to aid The Vietnam’s National Symphony Orchestra (VNSO) to improve its quality and professionalism in performing to meet the regional and international criteria.

In 2007, with the hope of popularizing classical music among Vietnamese music lovers across the nation, The Toyota Concert expanded its scale and transformed itself into a Trans-Vietnam Concert Tour, performing in big cities in the North, the Central and the South of Vietnam.

Every year, beside the professional performances of the VNSO, there are also showcases of national and international talents in the classical music field. Through years of endless improvement, now the tour has become one of the most highly acclaimed and most anticipated cultural events every year, helping to bring classical music closer to Vietnamese music lovers hence improved the performance quality of the VNSO.

Especially since 2009, all proceeds from the Trans-Vietnam Toyota Concert Tour’s (along with Toyota Classics) have been donated to the “Toyota Scholarship for Vietnamese Young Music Talents”. Hundreds of scholarships have been granted for talented  and outstanding music students of the five biggest music and performing arts academies in Vietnam in order to encourage and reinforce their efforts to study and practice to become professional performers in the future.
