Israeli quartet to perform in Vietnam

Four students from Israel’s Thelma Yellin High School of the Arts will perform in Vietnam from May 31 to June 6 as part of the Israel-Vietnam cultural cooperation programme.

The Israeli students, aged between 14 and 15, will also hold exchanges with their Vietnamese peers in three big cities, including Hanoi, Hue and Ho Chi Minh City.

In the capital city, the quartet, including Daniel Rubin (singing), Edo Gur (trumpet), Tomer Bar (piano) and Nadav Shapira (guitar bass), also plan to attend the Israeli Cultural Day at the University of Culture.

The Thelma Yellin High School of the Arts was established 48 years ago to commemorate the renowned cellist Thelma Bentwich Yellin, who migrated from the UK to Israel during the 1920s, and to foster the country’s artistic talents.
