Classical music lovers flock to Vilnius in June, where an almost month-long fiesta awaits them. Vilnius Festival, launched by the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Society in 1997, has eventually become one of the most important music events in the country. This celebration caused a unique wave of tourism in the capital of Lithuania, annually rolling onto the banks of Neris river. During the festival, melomanes can listen to symphonic and chamber composition interpretations not only by local, but also foreign performers. The listeners are also treated to recitals of eminent Lithu-anian performers, original composition evenings, foreign orchestras, opera and ballet troupes, and jazz soloists and ensembles, so beloved by the Lithuanian people. And the organizers of the festival annually delight visitors with a spe-cial concert. In 2018, masses of spectators gathered for the performance of the world-famous opera soloist Violeta Urmana, while a year before that- the famous Italian composer and conductor Ezio Bosso. Trust us, the summer is worth waiting for, and once it is here, go seeking divine music sounds on Aušros Vartų street or the Church of St. Casi-mir, found 200 steps away.
