From Chairman of Sun Group -

A heartfelt welcome from the Sun Symphony Orchestra! I am very pleased to present to you our 2024 Mainstage Performance Season. Maestro Olivier Ochanine has created a masterful program of international standard and I look forward to hearing the orchestra’s brilliance at each performance.

Since as far back as 2007, the Sun Group has maintained a mission of providing the highest quality to our patrons. In doing so we have raised the standards and expectations of the Vietnamese people. The creation of the Sun Symphony Orchestra is a testament to the value we place on improving the lives of our community members through music. The SSO has become an indispensable and integral part of Vietnam’s cultural scene and has embraced its potential role as an effective driver of economic development which makes this city an attractive place to live and work for this and future generations.

We invite you to join us on this exciting journey for Vietnam.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you to our concerts.



Dang Minh Truong

from Music Director

Dear friends of the Sun Symphony Orchestra,

It is a pleasure for me to welcome you to the Sun Symphony Orchestra’s first full, public concert season.

A new, professional symphony orchestra does not often emerge in today’s world. The Sun Symphony Orchestra is extremely grateful for the huge support that the Sun Group has provided in helping us to launch an orchestra of international standard in Vietnam. I’ve been involved with the creation of this orchestra since the very beginning and can emphatically say that the Sun Group has been fully committed to making this project succeed and grow in the years to come.

Our musicians have shown great aptitude, discipline and devotion to the Sun Symphony Orchestra’s vision. I am impressed with their ability to adapt in the whirlwind of changes that inevitably take place in an orchestra’s inaugural year. The musicians have been an absolute joy to work with, and this chapter in orchestra music for Vietnam is one with which I am so proud and grateful to be involved.

Our first official season, entitled ‘Symphony of the Rising Sun’, features some extraordinary guest artists and a wide array of music that is sure to pique our audience’s interest. We will serve musical offerings by way of our Mainstage Concert Series, which is outlined in this brochure. We also continue our popular chamber music concerts as well as our educational series in collaboration with the Vietnam National Academy of Music.

We look forward to welcoming you to our concerts and hope that you enjoy our seasons.



Olivier Ochanine
