This project is part of the program organized by the American Embassy for the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the restoration of Lithuania and provides an excellent opportunity for the Lithuanian public to get to know the best cultural traditions of the United States of America. The group’s concert tour in Lithuania is organized by Arts Libera International.
“Wings of Dixie” is a colorful and expressive ensemble that describes each performance in one word “Americana”. Their concert program includes a wide range of American music, from the old traditional jazz and blues to classical pop / rock hits. The musicians perform very entertaining performances of hot jazz and cool blues, from which it is easy to recognize the energy of American music.
“Wings of Dixie” is the only ensemble of this kind representing the United States Air Force in Europe, and has been enjoying its fans for over a decade with great music. The group’s appearances are always fun and positive, and undoubtedly a part of the American spirit and heat are in the hearts of the audience.
