3 Musicians from Vietnamese National Symphony Orchestra have joined My Morning Song project

Mr. Pham The Hoanh (trumpet), Mr. Van Thanh Ha (bassoon) and Ms. Luu Ly Ly (cello) took part in training with Caroline Sharp where they explored the possibilities and benefits of music in our communities as well as the My Morning Song project.


Cross- cultural connection with others through COVID has often felt impossible. A new project is set to see children communicate 6000 miles across the world through music - and despite COVID.


My Morning Song is a cross cultural musical and educational partnership between British and Vietnamese primary schools, based on Elgar’s Chanson de Matin (Morning Song). It is funded by the British Council Vietnam ’s ‘Connections through Culture’ grant and has been created and led by professional musicians and Educators, Caroline Sharp (UK) and Trang Trinh (Vietnam).


The project will see classes of primary schools in London and N.E. Scotland write their very own Morning songs in response to Elgar’s beautiful work, and exchange them with songs written by classes of children in Hanoi, Vietnam. The children will be communicating thousands of miles across the world through the universal language of music; learning and appreciating more of each others' culture, as well as developing musically and engaging with multiple national curricula in both countries.


My Morning Song’ will also partner with the The Vietnamese Youth Music Institute (VYMI) - partner of the Vietnam National Symphony Orchestra - and through this partnership, the project will provide training for musicians in the whole process, as well as the leading of workshops, to inspire future projects in the country. Also planned is a recording of Elgar’s beautiful work performed by Trang Trinh and Caroline Sharp.
