Vilnius Balys Dvarionas Music School pupils’ symphony orchestra has given over 150 concerts, appeared in Lithuania’s main concert halls, taken part in a number of international projects and collaborated with leading Lithuanian soloists, conductors and instrumentalists. The Orchestra is proud of having had the honour to perform under the baton of prof. Saulius Sondeckis, prof. Vytautas Viržonis, prof. Juozas Domarkas, Modestas Pitrėnas, Martynas Staškus, Vytautas Lukočius, Christian Malescov (Germany), Stefan Malzew (Germany), George Kennaway (Great Britain) and Arman Simonyan (Belgium).

In addition to traditional concert programmes, the Orchestra tries its hand in works of other genres. The collective has staged and performed Indrė Stakvilė’s musical Batuotas katinas (Puss in Boots, 2007) and ballet Snieguolė ir 7 nykštukai (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, 2013 in cooperation with pupils of Eglė Špokaitė Ballet School). International tours and joined projects with kindred international collectives is yet another field of the Orchestra’s activity.

The Orchestra involves more than 70 young performers. To be part of this collective is an aspiration of many a pupil of the Balys Dvarionas MusicSchool. The Orchestra earned the recognition of Lithuanian musical community and became an exceptional case of youth culture in Lithuania. Even if not all of these young individuals today living with music will choose a path of professional musicians, they definitely will become the members of educated society.
