American Vietnamese Friendship Organization


A beautiful panoramic view of New York City, an A-list international crowd, and an intimate classical music performance werethe key ingredients in a recipe for success for the 3rd Annual American Vietnamese Friendship Organization (AVFO) Event.


Barry Cohen, businessman and philanthropist and wife Yvonne graciously hosted Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen "Chosan" and Brian Grazer. Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen, founder of the AVFO and beau, Brian Grazer, brought along the Imagine Entertainment creators from Hollywood; Ron Howard and
Michael Rosenberg.


The diversity of AVFO’s supporters in attendance was widespread: Greydon Carter, MTV’s Tom Freston, stock guru Jim Cramer, Veronica and Ray Kelly (NYPD Police Commissioner) among many other dignitaries.


The eclectic mix of elite people was a ‘melting pot’ of minds and talents joined together with a common goal, the final ingredient, to help Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen fulfill her dream to raise money to buy music instruments for underprivileged but gifted students at The Hanoi School of Music and Fine Arts, where she began her studies at the age of 8.


Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen continued her studies in New York at The
Julliard School and Manhattan School of Music. Sharing a heartfelt memory from her childhood, Chosan said, “I began playing on an old Gavo-French piano with missing keys and worn ivory that I received after the war ended.
Mozart 's Sonata kept us living; it was the melody of a new beginning.


I want to help talented musicians in Vietnam to fulfill
their dreams. Tonight’s music is symbolic of the friendship between
Vietnam and America."


Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen brilliantly performed
Rachmaninoff and Liszt, ending with one of her own compositions. An added treat was a surprise performance by the accomplished cellist Yoev Nir, who will be playing with The Israeli Symphony.
