Dr. Nguyen Cao Tri - Chairman of Van Lang University, said: “The mission and philosophy of Van Lang Education Group is to bring positive impacts and inspire the community. The Fame Garden on the roof of the hall where you are sitting has an engraved word “Danh” (reputation), in the saying "You must have the reputation of making a contribution to your country since you were born on earth". We believe that education must nurture human values, foster compassion for others and love for the homeland, build up national pride in each person. These are also good values ​​that Trinh's music wants to spread. Putting it into the school space is not only about naming the hall or organizing music nights, but we are trying to convey the humanistic spirit and educational values ​​in the Trinh Cong Son’s heritage to the students, helping the young generation know how to love, how to live, how to deal with the country, nature, life and death, to enrich the behavioral culture of each person" .
