Born in April 2009, the choir aims to gather Vietnamese people with the same passion for singing and loving revolutionary songs. It now has 250 members of different age groups.

Appreciating the Homeland Choir’s contributions to promoting Vietnamese culture at the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), Vietnamese Ambassador to UNESCO Nguyen Thi Van Anh affirmed that it is a typical example of multicultural exchange, helping promote the culture, country, and people of Vietnam to international friends and the Vietnamese community in France.

On this occasion, Vietnamese Ambassador Dinh Toan Thang presented the ambassador’s Certificate of merit to the choir in recognition of its contributions to the Vietnamese movement in France, as well as to the cause of promoting Vietnamese culture abroad./.
