RATILIO. Žalnierėliu pargrįšiu

2017 11 25 ratilio2November 25, 18.00 h. St Johns' Church (Šv. Jono str. 12, Vilnius)

What does a boy feel when his sisters say good-byes before leaving for war? Does a mother, rocking a crib, think about what future waits for her son? What does a loving young girl feel, waiting for her loved one to come back?

On the Lithuanian Army Day, Vilnius University Folklore Ensemble "Ratilio" invites to reflect on the fate of the soldier at the concert " Žalnierėliu pargrįšiu” (I'll Return a Soldier). The heart of the program is traditional military-historical songs, featuring the drama of the young man who flees his family life for war.

There will be solo and male songs, sounds of violins, kanklės, hurdy-gurdy and other folk instruments. We promise a sacred and cozy evening in the Church of St Johns, which will appeal to everyone who long for a feeling of pure sound, calm presence, sincere feeling of human existence.

"Ratilio", soon to be a 50-year-old ensemble, favors traditional Lithuanian folklore, has accumulated a rich repertoire of all five Lithuanian ethnographic regions. The youth team constantly performs in Lithuania and abroad, is proud to represent the country at international festivals, introduces both Lithuanians and foreigners to the country's cultural heritage. Ensemble's Art director is Milda Ričkutė, Instrumental group leader Kristina Aponavičiutė.
