Jazz Salon Concert at Ambassador's Residence

Apr 27, 2009

Embassy of United states - In honor of Jazz Appreciation Month, Ambassador and Mrs. Michalak hosted the fifth of their salon series that featured Vietnamese Jazz icon Quyen Van Minh and two groups of Jazz students from Vietnam National Academy of Music on April 17. Joining the artists were Canadian saxophonist Christine Mitre and two embassy officers, Courtney Preston (vocal) and Don Mattingly (guitar). This offered young Jazz students (many in their first and second year) to display their talents to a delighted of artists, diplomats, and alumni from DOS exchange programs. This Salon Series is aimed at promoting (mostly) classical western music in Vietnam where it has yet to enjoy the public popularity one finds in other countries.
