Los-Angeles based concert pianist, composer and TV Host Van-Anh Nguyen returns to Sydney for a one-off performance in collaboration with her family and some of Sydney’s finest musicians. In this recital, Van-Anh will play Chopin’s Waltzes, opus 64, along with her coveted classical crossover arrangements which took her to #1 on iTunes Australia earlier this year.
The Nguyen family, who arrived in Australia as refugees in 1984 are all musicians and will be joining Van-Anh in concert. Oanh Nguyen (mother/soprano), Xuan‐Anh Nguyen (father/classical guitarist) and Viet‐Anh Nguyen (brother/pianist) will collaborate with Van‐Anh Nguyen in a variety of classical works. The second half of the concert will feature Hanna Oblikov (cello), Alex Norton (violin), Elsen Price (double bass) and Mark Olsen (drums/percussion) who will join Van-Anh in a variety of chamber works.
Van‐Anh’s virtuosic playing and infectious personality draw her audience into the concert experience. She has performed around the world in notable venues such as City Recital Hall (Sydney, Australia), Sydney Opera House, Segerstrom Center Of The Arts (California, USA) and the Shanghai Oriental Arts Center (China).
The Nguyen Family have been an integral part of the Vietnamese community in Sydney. They, along with Van-Anh, have appeared in several features as refugee success stories amongst Australian-born Vietnamese.
