During the annual concert “Guitar Fiesta 2018” in the St. Catherine’s Church in Vilnius on the 11th of April, at 7 PM, we will have a chance to see and hear all the beautiful colors of the guitar. The program of the evening includes the most beautiful melodies and songs of classics, rock, jazz, flamenco, Latin American, blues. During this exciting event musicians of different styles will be united by love for guitar and perform on one stage. Every year “Guitar Fiesta” attracts more and more performers who can surprise even the most demanding listeners, as well as guitar lovers.

This year “Guitar Fiesta 2018” is special. This is the tenth anniversary of the event dedicated to guitar fans and lovers. “Here, in the hands of talented performers, the guitar is revealed in the most unexpected colors”, says Gintaras Kamsiukas, the Head of the artist management and promotion company “Arts Libera International” which organizes the event. “This year in the “Guitar Fiesta”, we will pay special attention to ensemble music, we will see virtuosic Lithuanian guitarists who have prepared an impressive, genuine springtime program and are eager to introduce it to you”.

Continuing the long tradition of “Guitar Fiestas” we are going to present you a young talented duet Augustas and Algirdas Leonardas Poškai which was revealed after the International Guitar Competition in February. We will have a unique opportunity to hear live performances by Goda Gabalytė and Paulius Kinderis. The guitar trio “Tetris” comprised of Martynas Kuliavas, Alex Ten and Paulius Volkovas will show us a great performance. Virgilijus Jutas and Aleksandr Bielkin whose music always provokes audacious audience ovations, will also participate in the fiesta.
