NDO - The Vietnamese Musicians Association (VMA) held an awards ceremony on January 22 to honour the best musical works and music critique works of 2018.

The organisers awarded two A prizes, eight B prizes, 29 C prizes and 19 consolation prizes, selected from 195 works by VMA members from throughout the country.

The first A prize was given to a children’s song by Truong Quang Tuyen from Ho Chi Minh City, while the other A prize belonged to Nguyen Thi Minh Chau from Hanoi for 20 critical papers on music published in 2017 and 2018.

A prizes were not awarded in six categories, namely song, art song, chamber music, symphony, choir and music critique.

There were also no music performance shows awarded A, B, C or consolation prizes.

Commenting on the lack of A prizes, VMA Chairman Do Hong Quang stated that this year’s works are good but not outstanding enough.
