The 22nd public art festival of Nha Trang City, taking place from May 24 to 16, was an occasion for the city’s culture sector to assess the music and art movement at grass roots level, thereby improving the quality of the movement.
Taking part in the 22nd edition of the festival, 14 teams from 25 communes and wards in the city performed 66 performances of singing and dancing about the nation, the Communist Party, Uncle Ho, Uncle Ho’s soldiers, Nha Trang-Khanh Hoa people, defense of Vietnam's sovereignty over sea and islands, etc. With their own strong points, the teams had invested carefully in their repertoire to bring good performances to audience.
Most of the participants were amateur artists, who work in different fields but share love for music. The festival provided them an opportunity to perform on stage and show their performance skills. As said by Huynh Thi Minh Thuy (member of Vinh Luong Commune team), apart from ten night sessions for practice together, her team generally practiced at home separately. All the members were very happy that they could join the festival and perform music in front of audience.
Many performances at the 22nd public art festival of Nha Trang City showed an integration between types of folk music and art and modern ones, contributing to the diverse art colors of the performances. This partly helped to improve the quality of festival and meet the increasing demand for spiritual recreational activities of the public. Artist Bich Vuong, a jury member of the 22nd festival, highly valued the investment of the teams in trying to create quality performances with their own art colors.
Nha Trang City’s 22nd public art festival was a playground for the outstanding artists of the localities over the city to meet, exchange and learn from each other, thereby bettering the grass roots cultural and music movement. Each edition of the festival also helps the localities to discover new faces for the local music teams, which will contribute to the improvement of spiritual life of people as well as to the protection of types of intangible culture of the country.
