Get ready for a shot of musical energy and the very best of emotions for seeing in the New Year! It’ll feel so hot and fun, you’ll believe you’re at a resort under the palms, not in wintery Vilnius. The charismatic Venezuelan conductor Gerardo Estrada Martinez has assembled the Christopher Festival Orchestra especially for this festive performance, preparing a spectacular program where, as befits December, you’ll be able to hear works by the king of waltzes, Johann Strauss, fun operetta arias and musical hits, all crowned by passionate Latino music rhythms.
Irina and Dmitrij Muliarchik will be taking the stage together with the Christopher Festival Orchestra. These are singers who have amassed a wealth of creative capital at international competitions, prestigious festivals and opera theatres. From the very first moment they appeared on stages, they won over the hearts of professionals and audiences alike, allowing each piece they perform to be expressed in all of its beauty.
This concert is no exception. So see you… under the palms!
Program features J. Strauss, W. A. Mozart, F. Lehar, E. Lecuona, A. Piazzolla and many other musical surprises!
