Waiting for Trinh Cong Son Music Night "Big ring of holding hands" at Van Lang University

The music performance program with the theme "Big ring of holding hands" aims to celebrate the 20th anniversary of musician Trinh Cong Son's death, and officially announce the name of Trinh Cong Son Hall in Ho Chi Minh City for the first time. The program will be held on the evening of Friday, September 27, 2019, at the Hall of Campus 3 - Van Lang University.

On April 22, 2019, musician Trinh Cong Son's family met with the leaders of Van Lang University and agreed to name the Campus 3 Hall as Trinh Cong Son Hall. Since that decision, musician Trinh Cong Son's family and Van Lang University have come up with ideas for many months before officially announcing the concert "Big ring of holding hands" to introduce Trinh Cong Son Hall for the first time in the South area of Viet Nam. This is also an event in the Hue - Saigon - Hanoi tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the musician's death.
