Bic on danbauHoang, Bic Ngoc (pronounced: wong, ngoc bic)

Bic began studying music at age 8, attending the Hanoi Music and Arts College for 5 years. Then she entered the Hanoi National Conservatory of Music in 1979. Bic was fortunate to study under a number of Vietnam’s top masters, teachers, performers and received numerous invitations to perform with many of Vietnam’s most prestigious musical ensembles. It was during this period that she began her career as a regular performer and arranger for National and international radio, television and on board. She graduated with honors from the Hanoi National Conservatory of Music in 1987, and was immediately invited returning to the Hanoi Music and Arts College as an instructor.

Although teaching full time, Bic remained an active performer, and was the first woman to receive the First Prize for dan bau in the 1988 Vietnam Competition of Professional Instrumentalists. In 1989, she won the Golden Award at International Folk Festival of World Youth 13th in North Korea, and she also credited with being the first woman to perform on the Koni.

Since moving to Canada in 1992, Bic has teached Vietnamese music, instruments at the University of British Columbia. She has been expanding her musical repertoire by performing with a number of World Music and New Music artists, and performing works by Canadian contemporary composers.
