2016-09-09

On September 17 the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Society (LNPS) sets out the 76th concert season.  At the opening concert in the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Hall the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, one of Lithuania’s leading symphony orchestras, will be led by the long-time artistic director of the LNSO, Honorary Conductor Juozas Domarkas. The concert is dedicated to the Maestro’s 80th anniversary. Up until New Year the LNPS will offer the audience over fifty original programmes, which will be presented at the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Hall, Museum of Applied Art, St. Johns’ Church, Lithuanian Academy of Sciences Hall and Trakai Castle Great Hall. More than ten monthly concerts will be brought to various Lithuanian cities. 

The LNPS starts its new season facilitated by the patron – a concern Achemos grupė and Dr. Bronislovas Lubys Charity and Support Foundation. Unquestionably, the assistance from the patron and sponsors helps the LNPS to smoothly run the concerts representing the values of our music culture in Lithuania and abroad. Actively developing international relations the LNPS is going to partake in an extremely important cultural exchange with China this year. An assembly of Lithuanian performers will give concerts there. On September 16-18 Baltic Guitar Quartet will appear in the Third Silk Road International Festival in Xi’an, and on October 8-12 the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra led by Modestas Barkauskas will give concerts in China.

This half-year the LNPS’ concerts will keep the stable rhythm assuring the continuation of the best traditions. Music connoisseurs will find the usual series of concerts – orchestral, chamber music, staged family concerts and events to mark special occasions. Music in Trakai Castle Series will await the listeners in Trakai, Christmas Music Week will highlight the Christmas season, which will conclude with New Year concerts. The performers and educators of Music Encyclopaedia Live will visit cities and towns all around Lithuania.
