At the musical exchange with young local artists in Hoi An, Maestro Vilmos Oláh performed famous musical works. This was considered a great opportunity for Hoianian artists to interact with and learn from a world-famous artist.

Maestro Vilmos Oláh’s performance

According to leaders of the Hoi An City People’s Committee, violinist Maestro Vilmos Oláh’s performance took place in the Hoi An ancient quarter on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the twin relationship between Hoi An (Quang Nam, Vietnam) and Szentendre (Hungary). It made the relationship stronger and closer.

At the same time, it was a great opportunity for Hoi An to once again affirm its role as a member of the UNESCO Global Creative Cities Network.

Several world-famous artists and creative experts have chosen Hoi An for their artistic exchange and performances, contributing to the realisation of the initiative of Hoi An Creative House.
