Child artists bring joy to wounded and sick soldiers

QĐND – Friday, July 23, 2010, 20:42 (GMT+7)

PANO – 41 child artists from Hanoi Children’s Palace have recently visited wounded and sick soldiers in the Thuan Thanh War-Invalids Treatment and ConvalesceCenter in BacNinhProvince and Liem Can Seriously Wounded and Sick Soldiers Treatment and ConvalesceCenter in Ha Nam Province.

The young guests sung a number of songs praising the country, the sacrifice of soldiers in the war for national independence and salvation as well as childhood.

Their performance brought the war invalids back to their student-age, and partly relieved their physical pains and brightened their spiritual life.

Along with songs, the young artists also presented pictures painted by themselves to those who had devoted their youth for the country.

The visit is part of numerous significant activities towards the 63rd commemoration of War-Invalids and Martyrs’ Day on July 27th, and was a good opportunity for the younger generation to know more about the sacrifice of soldiers as well as to express their gratitude to them.

Vietnam hungry for creative young artists

Vietnam has yet to find the potential heirs to an older generation of artists who bemoan the lack of creativity among emerging new talent

In the past, Vietnam had sent its best artists abroad for training among some of the world’s most celebrated entertainers.

Names that emerged to lead that generation of singers, musicians and artists were Prof. Dinh Quang, People’s Artist Tran Hoat, filmmaker Cong Ninh, and MC Thanh Bach.

They built the Vietnamese entertainment industry in its early stages.

They also played an important part in serving as role models for the next generation of artists.

But unfortunately, many of these newer artists strove to be perfect copies of the old generation rather than employing imagination and creativity to create their own new and unique voices.

Industry insiders thus suggest that the solution to the problem is to do what was done in the past: ramp up efforts to have local artists study abroad.

Mr. Le Duy Hanh, who heads the HCMC Theatre Association, said: “We’ve all but forgotten this kind of project for a long time. But, better late than never, it’s time for us make it happen again. This requires the city’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Association to discuss things seriously with each other to map out the best way to run such a project smoothly.”

Meritorious Artist Tran Minh Ngoc has recommended inviting some international artists to train artists right here in Vietnam. She said this idea would help save costs and overcome the foreign language obstacle.

Theater director Duc Thinh said theaters in the city should cooperate with world famous theatres around the globe to educate Vietnamese artists about international trends and developments.
