On the 11th December 2015, SMPAA was honored to collaborate with Ben Thanh Art & Frame Gallery, Galerie Nguyen, and Heartbeat Vietnam Foundation to organize the charity art auction event “Art for Hearts” at the Reverie, Times Square Saigon. All proceeds from this event will fund heart operations for financially disadvantaged children. The uniqueness of this event was the combination of Fine Arts and Music: Nine artists drew the auctioned paintings as they listened simultaneously to the live music performances from SMPAA teachers and students.
The evening raised funds for 230 life-saving heart surgeries – SMPAA is very proud that our students are beginning to understand the power of music and how it can impact lives. Through events such as this, SMPAA is committed to developing a more open-minded and emotionally connected Next Generation.
