Chamber music festival Avanti
International festival AVANTI – is the stepping stone for young performers into the wider stages, connecting graduates from High Music Schools and accredited performers from all over the world. Originating at Kaunas, festival AVANTI during 5 years of its existence, was changing, developing, and looking for its face, musical innovation. During the third year, festival started to collaborate with performers from abroad and other Lithuanian performers working abroad. Performers from South Korea, Romania, Great Britain, Austria, Poland, Latvia and Estonia attended the festival.
One of the aims of this international festival is the growth of non traditional chamber ensembles, allowing the public to listen to professional music as well as promoting musicians‘ search for new ways of expression. Therefore most of the concerts are free of charge aiming to be accessible to everyone.
Festival AVANTI is not only the stepping stone for the young musicians but it is the union of musicians from different countries to come together for the same aim – perform professional music, glorify their country and get society‘s attention to the uniqueness of the chamber music. These goals are the goals of all Vytautas Magnus University Music Academy‘s artists and university‘s employees.
