An open air concert by the Vilnius University Wind Orchestra “Oktava” for people who miss evenings filled with the sounds of music.
On July 13th at 7 PM, the Grand Courtyard of Vilnius University (Šv. Jono st. 12) will become a musical fiesta of wind instruments. After a break because of the quarantine and remote concerts, the orchestra is very happy to invite its fans to an evening of live music and the closing of the 69th season of #oktava.
Having rested, recovered and missing live music - we will perform for you.
You can experience the massive sound of wind instruments and carefully selected repertoire in the free-of-charge concert for everyone, in the heart of Vilnius Old Town - the Grand Courtyard of Vilnius University!
The Art Director of the orchestra, Albinas Kučinskas is delighted to close this special season full of challenges with a live performance: “After a long time of performing only in the virtual space, we are happy to play live music again - to experience that feeling of true emotion and close connection between the members of the orchestra and the audience”
We will hear the music from the Phil Collins Collection, commemorate the queen of soul - Aretha Franklin, travel to the world of jazz music with the piece by Chuck Mangione called “Land of Make Believe”, cut the cake of funk with Mike Tomaro’s “Cut the Cake”. We will be immersed in Phillip Sparke’s “Almshouse Street Blues” - a synthesis of folk music, jazz and even bhangra! We will start the powerful brass engine of trumpets in the orchestral piece “Brass Machine”. We must not forget the legends of rock music as well - Pink Floyd and the arrangement of their song “Another Brick in the Wall” for a wind orchestra. Not to mention the jazz standards and the music of animated movies sung by vocalists Martyna Kučytė, Julija Šturo, Paulius Noreika.
You can expect that and so many more musical surprises in this concert.
