"The Sound of Hanoi" song composition contest debuts

The competition will provide a platform for professional and non-professional musicians to exchange and share experiences on how to respond to the artistic demands of the public.

The Hanoi People's Committee has launched a song composition contest under the theme "The Sound of Hanoi."

The competition aims to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the capital's Liberation Day [October 10, 1954-2024] and promote the image of Hanoi as a city of beauty with friendly and hospitable people.

It aims to highlight Hanoi's cultural and artistic values and promote the creative ability of writers and musicians to write songs that vividly and deeply reflect the life, cultural, and historical traditions, integration, and development of the capital city.

The contest is expected to create a playing field for professional and non-professional songwriters to exchange and share experiences on how to respond to the artistic demands of the public.

The Hanoi Municipal People's Committee has asked the Hanoi Department of Culture and Sports to take the lead and coordinate with district and city People's Committees nationwide to promote the competition to all songwriters, professional and amateur musicians, members of songwriting clubs and the general public nationwide.

The content of the works must reflect and praise Hanoi as a heroic capital city - a city for peace - a creative city where the quintessence of national culture comes together and spreads throughout the country. The songs should also praise the Hanoi people for their magnanimous, elegant, and loving virtues.

Each songwriter can submit three songs, which must be in line with Vietnamese national traditions and customs; unpublished or submitted to any competitions.

The Organising Committee is accepting entries from now until July 30. The committee is expected to review the winning works in September and October 2024.
