The world-renowned British Professor of Conducting Colin Metters returned to Vietnam to play two nights at the Hanoi Opera House from 21 – 22 November.

Accompanied by cellist Guy Johnston, winner of the BBC’s ‘Young Musician of the Year’ (2000) and Vietnamese Assistant Conductor Tran Nhat Minh from the Ho Chi Minh City Ballet, Symphony Orchestra and Opera (HBSO), Prof. Metters was joined by 90 musicians from the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra (VNSO) in a recital of the Roman Carnival Overture by Hector Berlioz, Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No 5. 

Prof. Metters was first invited to Vietnam by the British Council 16 years ago to begin a training project on behalf of the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra and was awarded the Cultural Activists’ medal by Vietnamese government in 1999 for his services to Vietnamese culture.
