Group of performers will raise money for the visually impaired!

Multicultural Education and Counselling through the Arts (MECA), a US community-based non-profit organisation, will be performing at the Youth Theatre in Ha Noi this Friday evening.

Come with MECA will feature jazz, classical and folk music. Trumpeter David Dove will be rubbing shoulders with Vietnamese group Giai Dieu Xanh (Green Melody) and perform works by Francisco Tarrega and Fernando Sor, among others. Expat Vietnamese guitarist Nguyen Quang Binh will also be giving a solo-performance.

MECA Mariachi, the non-profit organisation’s 30-member band, will be spicing up proceedings with hot Mexican melodies such as the Maya Song and the Song of Farmer.

The performance is part of MECA’s campaign to raise funds for disadvantaged children around the world. Proceeds from the night will go to Nguyen Dinh Chieu School for the blind.

Tickets can be purchased by calling (04) 9434673 or by visiting Youth Theatre’s box office at 11 Ngo Thi Nham Street in Ha Noi .
