Many art programs towards the end of the year
 
Art units in the province have started to rehearse for the art programs held towards the end of the year. Hai Dang Song and Dance Troupe have planned and are rehearsing for the art events and activities on the occasion of New Year 2022. The program of the troupe will include some performances which had been staged but haven’t performed and some new performances.
 
The art units in the province have sent the provincial Department of Culture and Sports their plan for the art and music programs scheduled for New Year and Lunar New Year 2022 and other occasions to promote and stimulate tourism in Nha Trang. Specifically, the provincial Center of Culture and Cinema will hold a program on Christmas night and a program on December 29.
