SAIGON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA (SPO)
Since the relaunch concert of the SPO in June 2017, SPO has grown rapidly from that time. Our ultimate goal is to become an Orchestra for the citizens of Saigon, for visitors, and also other local and foreign residents. We wish to create the opportunity to welcome international artists so that they bring their skills and talents to the SPO to showcase in our community.
We are ambitious and would like to build the Saigon Philharmonic Orchestra into one of the symbols of culture for Saigon. Our success will clearly demonstrate to our future sponsors that we are indeed a centre for performing and cultural excellence, and an acclaimed organization with which they will be proud and happy to sponsor and a recognized name they wish to be associated with. We wish to develop the orchestra into an internationally renowned orchestra.
The SPOs professional team is made up of local and international artists and plays a vital role in developing the next generation of musicians by guiding these students from a very early age; and nurturing them in both the cultural and professional surroundings of a functioning orchestra. We are a role model demonstrating the correct professional attitudes while providing them with a world class musical education. Nothing is more effective than practical activity and experience when teaching music and to be immersed in the environment of a functioning orchestra.
We envisage outreach activities with smaller ensembles of our musicians traveling off site to schools, museums, etc. and also allowing groups of younger adults to access to the orchestra venue to experience performances, either way this will benefit and inspire our future generations of children. We are confident that SPO will remain a sustainable and independent venture with both the professional and performance excellence it has so far clearly demonstrated.
